cookiesThis is how it happens.

Somebody has an idea for a new ministry, for a new way to bring the “Kingdom of Heaven to Richmond, Virginia.”  She tells a few close friends who encourage her to “go for it.”  The next thing you know she’s got a booth at the annual ministry fair, telling people how much fun it is to “bake and take cookies” to our neighbors here in the Fan.

It can happen just like that, and for Vicky Nicholau—it did.  Take a look at this email I got from Vicky on Sunday.

Hello Everyone,

Thanks for stopping by the “Bake and Take” table at the Ministry Fair this morning and for signing up to volunteer, it is so exciting to have more hands to help with this ministry.

As stated in the handout, we gather every other month at the church to assemble the baked goods we make at home. Once they have been bagged/boxed, we will take them to our neighbors in the Fan or surrounding areas.

In December we were able to deliver 35 dozen cookies to our neighbors on West Grace Street along with a copy of our Advent Calendar. On February 10, we will meet again to package muffins or cupcakes (your choice) for distribution to the Ronald McDonald House, the Women’s Emergency Shelter and the Men’s Emergency Shelter. I will forward more specific information no later than Wednesday, February 6th.

Let me know if you are able to participate this month for either the baking, taking or both. Our next gathering will be Saturday, April 6.

Again, thanks for your support and I look forward to spending time with you as we help bring KOH2RVA.

Blessings and Joy,
Vicky Nicholau

Doesn’t that sound like fun?  And even if you didn’t make it to her booth at the Ministry Fair, I’m sure Vicky would be glad to have your help.  Just send an email to enicholau@aol.com and let her know how you would like to participate.

Me?  I’m thinking about volunteering for quality control.

Somebody’s got to taste those cookies.

Update: Saturday, February 9, 2013

Thanks to all of you for making today’s Bake and Take get-together so wonderful.  We were able to provide cupcakes, cookies and muffins to the following locations:
 
The Ronald McDonald House   –  5 dozen assorted goodies
 
Home Again Men’s Shelter – 9 dozen (they were so excited, they came outside and helped us carry them inside).
 
Espigh Family Shelter for Women and Children  –   8 dozen assorted goodies.
 
Everyone was delighted to receive their treats and thanked the team for their kindness.  The weather was perfect and you could see God’s Kingdom shining down on Richmond today.
 
Blessings to all of you for the giving of your time and talent.
 
Vicky
