Have you ever had an idea, but didn’t know how to make it a reality? Well, Ecclesiastes 4:9 says that “two people can accomplish more than twice as much as one; they get a better return for their labor“.

I’m Connie Aplin, and it’s ministries while enjoying a fun evening. And, of course, our desire was to honor the LORD in all of our plans.


This event featured a cooking demonstration by Rand showed guests how to make some of the items on the menu. The food was proudly served by teenagers from FBCH.

Our venue was the lovely home of James and perfect weather. And, the LORD answered our prayers graciously in providing the cool, dry evening.


Guests enjoyed conversation, cooking class, great food and the needs. It was indeed a unique benefit event.

So, back to Ecclesiastes 4:9, we actually had many more than two people involved and cover food costs for a cottage for a year! This definitely qualifies as “a better return for their labor.”

The details surrounding this event, the people involved, and we say, “to God be the glory, great things He hath done!”

Are there some great things God could do if you asked Him how to turn some of the ideas in your heart into a reality? I think Proverbs 31:20 describes the heart of a Women of Compassion: “She opens her arms to the poor and make a difference in the lives of children.


Thank You!!!!

My personal thanks to the hostesses, Julee Ferreira, Dana Fox, Lori Garrard, Regina Harper, Carolyn Prahl, Tracey Russell, Cheryl Shaffter and Laz Smith. Without their help, this idea couldn’t have become a reality.


To Chef Rand recipes.


And, to all the other volunteers andal” a success.


With Sincere Thanks,

Connie Aplin
