thank you so much for joining us and for your interest in our work. Please contact us if you wish more information. We are very thankful for every word of encouragement. And ...please pray for us.The objective of the sewing project was and is to provide women of all ages training in the art of sewing. These instructions will give them an opportunity to sew clothing, household items and crafts for their own use or to create an inventory for them to sell for income.
We want to help individuals become self sufficient enabling them to create micro businesses in their homes or in a cooperative setting. Also this training could help them secure a job position within a larger business.
We pray for one another and start every session with a devotional time. We want to see these women get healed and becoming the person God has them created and called to be.

In 2010 we had a special meeting with Sheri Bizan( on the right side with the white pullover) and the sewing ladies. Sheri Bizan is the founder and president of PPP. As you can see, we stay together and accomplish our longterm sewing project for the women of Paraguay.
When we delivered a machine to Elva recently, we prayed together. My husband, Norbert, and I were very touched by the following words of this woman:
"Thank You, Lord,
that there are people in the world
who are thinking about us women in Paraguay"

Thanks for reading and "God bless you" or as we say here: "Dios te bendiga!"
