for better life in Bethlehem (BOUTIQUE)
John and Ann Miesen are from Springfield, Minnesota and very excited to make the trip to Slayton this weekend for the Autumn Boutique.

Miesenís are involved with Olivewood Imports whose mission is dedicated to assisting Christian Artisans in the Holy Land to maintain their fragile source of livelihood, in this region of our world, rife with political and religious tension. Political turmoil has deeply affected the lives of the loyal Christian families who have skillfully handcrafted the beautiful olive wood masterpieces you will be viewing this weekend.

Selling Olivewood to support several Christian families living in the Holy Land has been a family passion for years. It all started after receiving an Olivewood piece for Christmas in 2004. This gift came from a sister whose good friend spent an extended period of time in the Holy Land on numerous occasions. The Miesens contact her and learned of the many oppressed living in Bethlehem.
