Partnership Works

Caroline's Promise is blessed to partner with others as they work out God's plan for their lives. Sometimes we don't get to see the end of the story, we only get to walk a small part of the journey with them. While we don't know the end of the story for these ladies, we did get to witness a huge milestone for the sewing ministry at Iglesia Adonai. We wanted to share their excitement with you!

Seven ladies successfully graduated from the sewing ministry last week. They received their very own sewing machine and a Bible. What is amazing to us is the way God weaved so many different groups into the path of these women. When we first mentioned the sewing ministry last August,  we shared that a local preschool had a fundraiser to support the start up of this ministry, that Iglesia Adonai provided a teacher for these women and a space for the sewing classes. We told you about the sweet girl who asked to receive a donation of pillow cases for her birthday party in lieu of gifts...and how the Caroline's Promise mission team last summer helped with the beginning classes....since then Sunday School classes and individuals have donated money to help sponsor the ladies.

All these different groups doing their part toward a bigger goal....today these women have made pillow case dresses that have brought an income to them. They have the skills and tools needed to continue their own sewing businesses. And while each of these women did put money into their accounts from their first sales, what blessed us so much was that they also donated $40 each to the Hope Grows Campaign building fund! One of the participants of the class said, "I am very happy because today I received my sewing machine and a beautiful Bible.  I am so thankful to God and the ministry of Caroline's Promise and all of the people that made this possible.  May God bless all of you!"

Our second group of ladies began classes this week.  In three months they will graduate and receive their own sewing machine.  If you or a group you are a part of would like to sponsor one of these ladies at $150  please donate here, choosing the fund "Guatemala Orphan Projects".  Write "sewing" in the comment box.

We don't know the end of the story for these precious ladies. But we do know the One who holds their future in His hands... Partnership in ministry works, and their story proves how the blessing of one is multiplied to the many. Thank you for partnering with us to provide a brighter future for the women of the sewing ministry and those whose lives are impacted by them.
