Last Day of Teaching

Waiting for the Fruit

Sarah looks happy, doesn’t she? Today we went to a village where the people make a living by recycling from the next door dump and trash piles. The small room was filled with women and children. The women meet twice a week for sewing classes and devotional. I was privileged to g

A New Song

Lovely Hands learning to sew. This was the first day for a new group of women to begin the 9 month sewing course. What a delight it was to share devotions with them and then pray and “bless” each set of hands before they began training. The stories would bring tears. God l
