i feel a great weight knowing that if we fail in our effort to help them succeed we will have failed a desperate need. here is a picture that was taken during a skype call this weekend with the missionary family who helped create this opportunity for these women. you can see their smiling faces and the faces of our extended team members. our extended team members live in katerini and are the ones who are doing all they can to come along side of these women in the weeks that thomas and i are not physically there to help them and answer their questions. they are an integral part of our effort and provide both a studio and the equipment needed for the women to work and they are there to encourage them when discouragement becomes overwhelming. anna is our translator and she commits time every visit to make sure that all of my teaching is understood and if there are questions we can respond appropriately.
so pass this website along to your friends, church families, or other organizations who might be interested. encourage them to support these women and instead of getting a receipt for a donation made get a beautiful quilt which they can keep for themselves, give away as a gift, or use to donate to an auction where it can be used to raise money for other good causes. it's kind of a win win for all:)
good sewing to you. may God bless you ten-fold for the part you might play in supporting these women in katerini, greece.
