A heartfelt thank you to everyone who joined us at the Art Fashion Show! ๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿ‘— Your presence and support made the evening truly magical.

Witnessing the creativity of our incredible kids was nothing short of inspiring. They transformed old fabrics, ones that would have been discarded, into stunning new fashions. ๐Ÿ”„๐Ÿ’ƒ

This beautiful process mirrors a powerful truth: just as our young designers brought new life to forgotten fabrics, so too does God transform us, no matter what we've been through. His love and grace turn our past into a canvas for a brighter, more beautiful future.

Thank you for being part of this transformative journey with Ephesus Academy. ๐ŸŒŸ
