to all, who make this project possible,
to all, who carry me and the women in prayer,
to all, who support me financially,
to all, who give me the possibility to stand in the service, God has
called me to. That's a privilege: "There is no better place on earth then in the center of God's will."

When I came to Paraguay with my family in 2006, I could have never imagined to be a blessing for so many families in Paraguay - not even in my boldest dreams. To God be the glory!

The new sewing center of the Sewing Project Paraguay:

 in Limpio - May 2017

Finally we could finish and start to use our new sewing center.
 We had to put a lot of effort in the process of the construction. 

 Our teachers did already sew some chair covers. Bit by bit we will try to fix the details and  establish the other rooms. The plan was to paint the floor. We had no more money. One morning Norbert woke up in thoughts of the floor and the progress with the construction. He prayed: “ Lord Jesus, if you send us money right now, we will tile the floor and everything will be so much nicer and easier to  keep clean. “ At 10:00 the office of a organisation called and asked Norbert: „ When are you planning to pass by to receive the money?“ „Which money?“ he asked. „ Well, the donation which we received for your sewing project a few days ago!“ „I didn’t know about it!“ he replied.  The joy was great. When we bought the tiles, the first quality tile was discounted and cheaper as the second quality tile. The salesman couldn’t explain it. This way we could tile the whole building. The sewing project has very bright rooms, now.

At the same time, the sewing classes started and the new created workshops. Ms. Sabine Frank from the Senior Expert Service -  a ministry of the German Government has been with us again for 9 weeks to teach our teachers. Everybody is missing her very much. Thank you Sabine!

 The leader of the  US Organisation PPP (Projects for the People of Paraguay), Ms. Sheri Bitzan (photo below) visited us. It was the initiative of her organisation that started this sewing project in 2009.  The project wasn’t our idea –simply a miracle.
