"She makes linen garments and sells them... she is clothed in strength and dignity... " Proverbs 31:24-25
The Lord is using Su Refugio Ministries, "His Refuge," to bless many widows in Paraguay. And we praise HIM for the answers to prayer we are seeing over the past several months.
For the first-time ever, we have 4 classes going at the same time by 3 different local Paraguayan ladies that our amazing missionary, Sandy Stevener, has trained in two distinct hand-craft skills. These skills enable these women to stay with their children and earn income to support their families. In total, the Lord is reaching over 70 women (and even a few teenage girls!)
As the women gather for classes we share with them stories from the Bible of women that often have similar struggles to their own. The transforming power of the gospel message is also shared and many women open their hearts to receive the love of Christ.
We are so grateful for Sandy Stevener (our faithful and talented master teacher.) The Lord is using Sandy and her husband Bill (our director of the Center of HOPE) to bless the women living in the barrios surrounding Tobati, one life, one family, and one home at a time! This is Sandy (pictured right) with Myrian as she received her certificate of completion for the hand-craft skills class she attended at Su Refugio. Jesus, This ministry belongs to You and it is for Your glory alone. As we celebrate these success stories, may we always be mindful of the One responsible!
Just three years ago, Myrian was one of Sandy's punto cruz (a type of cross stitch) students. As she gained confidence in her abilities, she taught her daughter, Lujan. Today, Myrian creates beautiful cross-stitched pictures and frames them. She makes 400% profit on her artwork! This blesses her home tremendously! Heavenly Father, Thank YOU for Myrian and the transformation we are witnessing. Please bless her and her precious family.
