The Sewing Club
Today we really got to work organizing and figuring out what we are going to do for the rest of the time here. They are ready to learn some new and more difficult things. Yeah!
All the same people are here (so good to see the same ladies from last year) plus 7 or 8 more! ...more children have been chosen for ichooseyou so more parents are welcome to sew or to make something that is "marketable" as they say. Some of the new moms are wanting to do different things such as making Bead necklaces, earrings and bracelets to sell. Also braided door mats. I'm all for that...whatever talent you have, use it! We'll be buying supplies here for that, praying our US dollars will go a long way here. :)
They had 4 sewing machines stolen from the last location so they have moved to a permanent room that can be locked up.
Tomorrow we'll continue to work on some difficult things. Please pray for great comprehension and understanding for them. This is tough stuff and can be tedious at times. Pray for patience for them.
Thank you to everyone for your support, can not put into words the difference you are making in the lives of these women and their families.
Love you Jones family.
