Welcome to Highs & Lows Bracelets, I'm Kezia; the founder and designer.
Giving back has always been something I've held close to my heart. I am a strong believer that we are blessed to bless others.
March 2018 I have had the opportunity to go to El Salvador for one week, with my family and a few other families from our church on a mission trip, to build homes for locals in need, as well as create relationships with them.
El Salvador is the smallest country in Central America. They have a phenomenal landscape with beautiful waterfalls, mountains, volcanoes, and most of all; beautiful people. But unfortunately the whole country is not beautiful like this. They struggle with extreme poverty, violence and recurring natural disasters. 61% of this country is currently living in villages of extreme poverty, some without food or water. Gangs and crime rates are especially high in these regions.
This is where the name Highs and Lows came to me.
Before going on this mission trip, I had to raise a total of $3400 for the supplies of one home. This is why I started this hand-crafted bracelet company. Because of Jesus and how good he is, I was able to raise the whole $3400 before going on this trip! Unbelievable right? (I would encourage you to read my previous blog posts for further information).
But it doesn't just end here. I continued to sell these small bundles of love.
I knew that in February 2019, I was going to be flying out to Australia for 5 months, to attend a Capernwray Bible School. During my time there, I'll be learning more about our God, and will also be doing some small local outreach. So I decided that 50% of the profits made selling bracelets will go towards the outreach during my Bible Schooling and the other 50% will still be going towards the building of homes in El Salvador!
By the grace of God again, I was able to take $1000 with me to Auz, not knowing what I will be using it for (read blog post titled “His Almighty Provision” for more information)
I am currently attended my Bible School in Australia, so making bracelets has been put on hold for a little bit until the shop re-opens in September 2019!
I am excited to continue on this old journey, as well as embark on a new one. Let's see what God has in store.
I'd love to hear from you! Message me if you have any questions, comments or if you just want to chat.
Because of all of those who have bought a bracelet, Naomi, Elias,
Jefferson and Helen were able to receive their very own
