There are these wonderful ladies in my church. I call them Secret Sisters. Each of them agreed to pray for and encourage one of our GEMS Counselors for this GEMS year. It’s like a Secret Pal kind of thing, except that it’s about prayer & encouragement and the GEMS Counselors simply receive the blessing from the Secret Sisters. This is the 4th year of this and it is a blessing for the Counselors and the Secret Sisters alike…at least…I think it is and I hope it is! At the end of the GEMS year, in May, we have a Secret Sister Reveal. We meet at a counselor’s home and the Secret Sisters bring clues and a gift for their counselor and the counselor gets to guess which lady has been praying for them all year. We have such a good time! I am so grateful for the ladies who have committed, both this year and in past years, to praying for and encouraging the GEMS Counselors. I don’t think they even realize how valuable their service is, but it makes a huge difference in the lives of the counselors and ultimately, in the lives of the girls we serve in our GEMS club.
And a totally unrelated picture – aren’t those just the cutest little daffodils you’ve ever seen? Yes, they’re supposed to be that small.
