St. James’ Church Family Life Ministry, working in tandem with the SuperPowerKids (SPK), held a tea talk for parents on The VIRTUES Project with Ms. Jenny Ong, a trained facillitator of The VIRTUES Project,  as the speaker.

lavendernotes was given the wonderful opportunity of catering a tea for the talk and this afternoon was THE DAY!!!Over 40 people turned up and there was a buzz of energy and excitement around the tea table as people gathered around for some food and chit chat after the talk.

We were very encouraged by what we saw and heard at the tea table as people mingled, ooh and ahh over the decorations, ate cookies and sandwiches, picked up a little pressie of the nicely wrapped brownies, made their own coffees and teas…and best of all, asked about lavendernotes and took the brochures that we laid out!

Everything we’ve done so far since God laid the vision upon our hearts last year has been on a small scale – small, but comfortable…and with each tiny step that we have taken, God has at each point, been faithful, encouraging and affirmative. This tea party is by far, the biggest project we’ve ever taken on…and also the first ever catering event that lavendernotes has ever hosted.

We are truly thankful to the Family Life Ministry for giving us this opportunity to explore our creativity (not to mention baking skills!), expand our horizons and expose more people to our cause.

Above all, we give all glory and honour to the God who knows us, calls us by name…and to whom lavendernotes belongs to. It is His cause, His project, His work.

We look forward to greater things in time to come.

Meanwhile, here are some photos that we took of the table spread for your viewing pleasure.
