5% of my profits go to unadoptable orphans in the warzone in Sudan. The rest goes to keeping my husband in ministry locally, and globally.
Hi! I am Petronella, but everyone calls me Nellie. I have been a stay at home mom for 35 years:) which enabled me to minister to broken inner city kids for many years. That's my heart of hearts but a few years back it became apparent that I needed to help our family financially. Yikes - what in the world could I do?! With Dutch parents, I knew how to CLEAN! And so I began cleaning condos downtown Chicago and loved using my hands to bring beauty, to restore, to transform, to please my clients.
When the opportunity came to give up cleaning and repurpose dressers, I felt that same exhiliration at seeing old dilapitated dressers receive beautiful facelifts. I paint on the front sidewalk in the summer, the kitchen in the winter. Pure joy to meet so many new people in my neighborhood. Pure joy to have customers come to my home. Pure joy to match a specific dresser to a specific need a customer has! Love love love it!
A LOT of work, hours, and shuffling heavy pieces of furniture around for this granny but God has always give me the desire and energy to do what He has given me to do in each season of life.
And so, hand in hand with that, at the same time I began to paint dressers, I was literally given 5 different books about orphans from different friends - I wasn't asking or looking for them!!! What was that all about! The last one I read was Passport Through Darkness by Kimberly Smith. It absolutely WRECKED me and I KNEW that helping these unadoptable kids in the warzone of Sudan was also my next assignment from the Lord. But how! And that's when it came to me, I could give some of the profits of my dressers to them. And so it is with deep compassion that I give 5% of every dresser to MakeWayPartners to help 1,500 kids rescued from slavery, rape, starvation, abuse. The rest of our profits go to keeping my amazing husband in ministry to Africa, the U.S. and many other places around the globe. Check out hftc.org (his ministry site).
