There’s lots happening – please pray for us on these dates
From 15 – 25th July Women from isolated indigenous communities in the Paraguayan Chaco will be exhibiting their crafts at the national agricultural show in Asunción. They have only exhibited once before in 2004. Many indigenous families depend on their sales for food and clothing so they hope for lots of customers and to raise awareness of the difficult situation they live in.
Mission Paraguay volunteers will launch 3 sewing workshops. We’re aiming to teach the basics for tops, skirts and trousers in one week (19 – 23rdJuly) and
then one day, 8th August. A special 3 hour course on making shoulder bags will run on Friday 6th August. Volunteers are stepping in to replace the course the government workers are not continuing. Pray we’d overcome any language barrier and make great friends very quickly. Please pray that all the participants would enjoy the training and get everything they need to make good use of it. That some may be able to sew for a living. Once again thanks to all the donors of lovely cloth and haberdashery. It’s a joy to use
Happy holidays, Caroline
