The Story Cloth is a work of God and a real blessing that He has given to us. Wayne has been work with two pastors as to what stories we should use for our new training effort. Wayne has been working with these men for years. It took quite a bit of time to just developed our list of 24 stories that would work for us, but to find an artist to draw 24 graphics for us was even harder. We pulled on all our contacts and no one had the time to take on this big task. As we prayed we watched artist after artist turn us down. Then word got out to a young artist living near the Monkey Island Church whom work with. She had made plans to attend our first training class in September. The week before she heard of our need and just starting drawing from the list of stories she had been given. Friday night she showed up with a pack of 24 graphics to hand us. What an unexpected blessing.
Then we had to get it printed. This was another God send. The graphics firm we had used the the past had gone out of business. The new places we looked at wanted three times the price. It was a search in futility. Then as in one of the God coincidences we discovered a place that would make them for the same price we got three years early. Praise God! This all has been a faith journey and now our students have a great, locally made tool, to help then open the conversation and tell the greatest story every told.
