When this class of 40 women graduates on October 27, we will have graduated 409 women in Eastern Congo!!! I wish you could go with me to visit them at their local businesses. They are so proud. You did that!
We are busy shopping in Dallas for sewing kit supplies — with the gorgeous sewing kit bags the Sisters of Sewing (SOS) of Keller United Methodist Church made for us (see below). We buy the sewing machines in Bukavu, so are raising money to make that order there.
For $25, you can sponsor a sewing kit (we need 40, one for each graduate). For $150, you can sponsor a sewing machine (we need 20; we give two graduates one machine to share as they start their own business).
You always come through for these women. Thank you for that.

Thanks to the Sisters Of Sewing (SOS) at Keller UMC for making these gorgeous bags for our sewing kits!
