We’ll See You at GC!

Thursday, June 17th, 2010

Are you going to the SDA General Conference session next week in Atlanta? If you are it will be your opportunity to acquire a fine delectable that can only be obtained at the ICC booth. I am speaking of the amazing Stroopwafels (Stroopkoeken in Dutch) from The Netherlands. I’ve enjoyed these wonderful treats on several occasions and I can tell you that they will not last. I’ve traveled the world and been privileged to enjoy some tasty ethnic cuisine but nothing is quite like the Stroopwafels.

These confectionery concoctions were provided for us by a Dutch baker to aid ICC in raising money for ICC’s worldwide ministry that is creating families for orphaned and vulnerable children. Each package of Stroopwafels will cost $5. You’ll be able to purchase these mouth-watering, delightful delectables at booth number 554 with all proceeds supporting ICC’s children.

Once you’ve got your Stroopwafels be sure to take the chance to view the many other distinctive items collected from the countries in which ICC has projects. The Mexican tops which were very popular five years ago in St. Louis will again be at our booth. Just remember, these tops sold out in two days.

You will also find hand-made decorative clay pottery from Nicaragua and Guatemala. The story of the Nicaraguan family who creates these distinctive, singular pieces of folk art and how they’re supporting ICC is quite fascinating. Wood carvings from India will also be available. Remember, the proceeds from the sale of these items directly support our children.

While you’re at our ICC booth be sure to spend some time talking with those of our staff members manning the booths. This will be your opportunity to talk personally with many of the people who make this ministry what it is.

We look forward to seeing and talking with you at the General Conference session. You’ll be able to find us at booths 554 and 556. See you there!

Thanks for reading.
