We are so Grateful and Thankful to each one who support us. God has been good and we praise Him for the work He is doing in and through us here in Rwanda.
“With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26
This year has been the best year yet, as we have seen God answer some prayers, that we began praying back when we started the ministry in 2012. We wanted a personal translator with the same vision as we have, and not only did God send us one, but He sent two in the form of a husband and wife team, Julius and Evelyne, and family. Please pray for their monthly support level to increase.
We first met Pelagia in 2012 when she came to learn how to sew in our first sewing class. She graduated and came to the advanced class we were offering then, and then continued to work with us, so she could earn a sewing machine. She did, and was very happy to be able to take it home to help with family needs. We met Jean Claude, her husband, and the rest of the family when we had a sponsor for their children’s schooling. Soon there was another one added to the family. With no work, Jean Claude sold the sewing machine to pay the bill. Pelagia came to us for money to help feed the children. This happen a couple of times. Then one of the littles ones got hit by a motorbike running to greet her older sister coming home from school. We helped to pay the hospital bill and she was treated and is now okay. Recently, they asked for about $100.00 to start a small grocery store in their house. We went over their plan and decided to loan them the money as they want to pay it back. This is some of what we often encounter. The dry season and the first few months of the wet season (before they can eat some of the produce from their gardens) are the toughest here. Many families have nothing to eat. Some often come to our house or the sewing school asking for money or food. At times we wish we could do more.
- Pray for our health, energy, safety, guidance, and wisdom.
- Pray for our personal financial needs and the ATW financial needs.
As God answers prayers and supplies funds, we do what we can,
