Sewing Machines and Lessons Transform Lives in India: Here’s How You Can Help
Do you have a sewing machine? Do you use it very often? Is it vital to your livelihood?
To some women in India having a sewing machine and knowing how to use it well makes a huge difference in their lives. They are able to provide an honorable living and home for themselves.
In late July four of us from Cordova Neighborhood Church are going to India for about 2 1/2 weeks. We are going with LINC Ministries. One of the things we are doing is to raise money for 60 sewing machines which we will buy in India.
These machines will be given to four sewing centers that LINC Ministries operates. At the center the women are taught how to be a seamstress. Upon graduation each lady is given a machine so she may then start her own business.
The women who attend the training are women who have been abused. Besides offering the women a skill, they are offered a new life and hope.
All because of a sewing machine.
Would you like to help us with this? On Saturday, May 18, we are having a yard sale, bake sale, car wash, and flea market at Cordova Neighborhood Church from 9am -2pm.
- We are taking yard sale and bake sale donations.
- We need help with the car wash or one of the other stations.
- If you’d like to make a monetary donation, mail your check to LINC Ministries PO Box 1314 Roseville, CA 95678. Or I have addressed, stamped envelopes to LINC for you to use
- If you donate money, you can donate towards our general financial need (travel, food, lodging) or towards a machine.
- We are looking for folks who will PRAY for us.
