To FB Family (Specifically those in the DFW metro-plex)

Star and I would like to extend a personal invitation to you and others to an upcoming workshop. The workshop is an Introduction to Arts and Trauma Healing presented by the Arts and Trauma Healing program of the Center for Excellence in World Arts at Dallas International University in partnership
with Sowing Seeds of Joy. Check out the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1L0Uk1Skjrs
The Arts and Trauma Healing Program.mp4

The focus of the workshop will be on how the art can help people further explore content then move to expressing their feelings leading toward healing. A Certificate of Participation will be given to participants who complete all sessions at the end of the workshop. Participants must commit to attending all the sessions. This event is in person; All Covid-19 protocols and measures will be followed.

We are asking that you consider attending and/or sharing with others who might be interested; this will be a very impactful workshop and you will agree, and very relevant for the times. For a very effective class, we are looking to populate a class of 30, and placing them in smaller groups. It's important for you to register soon to be among that 30.

For registration go to: www.eventbrite.com/e/an-introduction-to-arts-and-trauma-healing-tickets-163297662705

Wow! What an experience! We are so thankful for our prayer team, prayer partners, and every individual that prayed with and for us as we headed down I-20 to Mendenhall, Mississippi at 5:00 AM on July 7th, 2021. The trip started off with prayer as we loaded two 15-passenger vans with supplies and necessary items. Pastor Dwight McKissic and Cornerstone Baptist Church provided the vans which made it possible for us to travel to Mendenhall. In addition, Sowing Seeds of Joy Board Member Pastor Dennis Webb of Bear Creek Community Church, Irving, TX brought a trailer and church member Daniel, to head the construction project. We are so thankful for the kindness, resources, prayer support and people who made this all possible. #missionsmobilization #mendenhall #crossculturalmissions #missionstrong sowingseedsofjoy.org

Sowing Seeds of Joy is organizing a travel, learn and serve experience to Mendenhall, Mississippi. We have an opportunity to partner with The Mendenhall Ministries to support them in rebuilding their community. Mendenhall is located in rural Mississippi with a population of 2,500, where the digital divide has always been prevalent. The pandemic has exacerbated the problems with access to technology and poor infrastructure. The community is also in need of funding to repair buildings destroyed by natural disasters in 2020 and ongoing Covid-19 pandemic relief.
