As part of our annual Encourage-A-Legislator Program, we deliver boxes and boxes of homemade cookies to Richmond for our legislators and their staffs. This year we had 10 ladies and one young man deliver 209 dozen cookies from 13 CWA of Virginia bakers in the Roanoke-Bedford-Lynchburg area. With such a great response from our ladies, we were able to bless not only our legislators and their staffs, but the Mailroom personnel, the security guards at the front door and the Pages.
This event is one of our favorite trips to the General Assembly. In the years we have been doing this, we have never heard anyone say to us, “I don’t want your prayers,” or “I don’t want your cookies.” You can actually see relief on their faces when we tell them we are only there to encourage. We were blessed to hear over and over again, “We are getting your postcards.”
We will continue to pray that God will soften hearts and encourage as cookies are eaten and enjoyed.
