We thank God for His mighty works in our ministry and in families’ lives. Here is a true story how God takes care of the people who trust in Him.
Her name is Sandhya. She works alone to feed her two children Suraksha (16) and Aryan (14).
Sandhya had become very discouraged in carrying all the burdens of the family on her shoulders. There were no relatives or friends who supported or stood by her in her struggles. There were times when she felt like giving up on life.
Moreover she was not educated nor an outgoing person, just a very simple and mild lady.
There were many people who took her work and were not faithful to pay for her time and effort. She lost trust in people and grew tired of even trying, so disheartened was she of her life and family situation.
It was at that moment that God guided us to meet her and learn of her helpless situation. We were deeply sorry for her condition and prayed that God would open ways to bring her out of it.
We helped her to know that there is a person who loves her and really could help her out from all her sadness, tears, problems, and difficulties, and turn her situation into joy, peace, and happiness through our Lord Jesus Christ.
With great happiness she accepted Christ as her Savior and into her life.
We helped her by giving her the opportunity to work in our vocational tailoring center. Now she is a master tailor, cutting master, and also trainer.
Now she trains other new ladies who come to our center in tears and with no hope for their families’ survival. We were able to reach many other ladies who are suffering with similar life stories to sister Sandhya's.
So far we have been able to train 90-100 women in the last 4-5 years.
We were able to share God’s good news and the love of Christ with your helping hand and build up broken families.
Because of your support we were able to bring them from darkness to light, from sorrow into joy, from struggles to happiness.
These women are very happy they can feed their children three meals a day without depending on anybody, even their own husbands who often do not care for them as they should. We were able to support Sandhya's family needs and her children’s education all through your support.
We hope to train many more women to earn their livelihood and moreover we want to share Gods truth and light and help them to accept Jesus Christ as their personal savior, who can comfort them and stand with them through all their lifetime.
Thank you all for standing along with us to reach these broken lives and to build for the kingdom of God. The products we send are made by these broken lives, so please take them and be blessing to our ministry and to the women here in India.
You are wiping the tears of helpless women by choosing our products and supporting us.
In His Service,
Brother in Christ
