- working with children across the world
I'm Graham Reed. My wife, Steph, and I have spent twenty years working amongst children and our work has taken us to countries in Africa, Europe and America, where Steph and I train and support children's workers, and support AIDs awareness programmes. I regularly visit local primary schools to take assemblies.
My recently published book is called "We Lose 1000 Children Every Week". It challenges churches, and offers practical ideas for involving and empowering young people in the church.
The Charity Cards for sale on this website are reproduced from my paintings - a selection of my botanical illustrations and watercolour seaside paintings. My interest in plants began in Central Africa where I was born and grew up, and continued as I studied Botanical Illustration at Sheffield University. As a Christian I found that studying Botany gave me a glimpse of how much God cares about detail.
All the profits from the sale of my greetings cards go towards our work, as CrossBow Ministries. In 2005 we were invited to work in Latvia and Zambia, and in each year since then we have focused on Latvia, making mulitple trips each year.
We will be pleased to give you more details about CrossBow Ministries on request.
