Microfinance Sewing Program Sets Many Free in Western Kenya
After a successful initial training on the basics of sewing. The brethren from Moi’s Bridge received a big blessing as a sister versed in sewing returned. Brother Haron updates:
“Many of the women in Moi’s Bridge lost their husbands in the 1992, 1997 and 2007-2008 political tribal clashes and are struggling to meet their basic needs and the needs of their children. While we believe sponsorship is a life saving and life changing program, it has been on our sponsor’s heart to couple that ministry with a ministry that equips and empowers these widows in our village to climb out of poverty through opportunities like training them on tailoring by manual sewing machines. We have been praying that with the support and prayers from our sponsors that one day the widows will become more financially self-sufficient and might no longer require sponsorship for their children to attend school or to meet basic needs such as food and housing. By the support from our dear sponsors, widows are transforming from a desperate people to godly, inspiring women now empowered and hopeful for their Future. God bless GMFC for your prayers and support to continually empower and equipped them to change their circumstances through the simple acts of loving them and encouraging them to explore their God-given gifts. You are the hands and feet of hope to these widows that desperately needs to not only hear the Good News, but to tangibly feel the love of God in their lives through you. I thank Jesus for the few who help. -Bro Haron Wanjala.
