More SnippetS!

I am so thankful to my angel Mother, who has now gone home to heaven,for teaching me how to sew when I was just a little girl. It has given me many opportunities to use my sewing to help others. Thank you for this opportunity to sew dresses for little girls in Africa. God bless you!!

Sewing was just a passtime for me, but you make me want to take my sewing machine again. It makes me want to work with you to make the difference!

I saw a story on TV about these dresses & thought it would be fun to try. I made 3 dresses in a matter of hours & ended up taking them to a local shelter for abused children here. Its the week before Easter & one of the ladies said it was perfect timing, the dresses would go from the playground to church! I will continue to make them. I delight in finding cute pillow cases to use.

My Mom (who is 83) heard about your project and so she and I sent for stuff from “Sewing with Nancy.” I can’t sew to save my life but, with my mothers help, I just finished our first dress. We will be sending three and probably more, soon. I think your project is great! (I may even attempt something harder).

I love this dress idea, but have another for the boys. I bought jeans at Goodwill for $2. ea & will shorten them for shorts. I think the boys will love all the pockets. For me it is easier than making the shorts. Perhaps this idea will also catch on.

What a wonderful piece on the news this evening on your wonderful project. One of the ladies who has made dresses with me here at Faith Lutheran in Bloomington, Indiana called me and left a message on our answering machine that her daughter had called her and told her it was going to be on. I have no idea how she knew that but we were going to church for an Advent Service so taped it so we could finally “meet” you. What wonderful exposure your efforts and project received……I’m sure it will mean more dresses for those dear little girls.
Blessings on you and your work.

Dear sister Rachel,

Praise and honor be to our Living God in the Precious name of our LORD Jesus Christ that praise God.
Sister Rachel, am Sister Nyakaisiki Monica the wife to Pastor Rich Friday the director Hope For Vulnerable Children Ministry Kasese Uganda East Africa.
Sister, I highly thank God who has used you in a great way to support these poor and needy children in our orphanage or vulnerable ministry. I pray that may the Almighty God add you more anointing and blessing so that you can become a great blessing to God’s people. Actually our orphanage children are very happy and pray you a blessing for what you have done them even though they have not yet touched and dressed them because the Posta is needing some clearance money and we are trying to find it so that we can get the clothes and supply them to these children.

Sister, may the Almighty God our creator and blessing, bless you abundantly and in full measure for this great bless to us.

Yours Sister Monica

Hi, Rachel!
Many thanks for the clothing we got from Aunty Pam of Florida.

I am so glad to hear back that our donated supplies were delivered to Malawi. It is so great to know that they went to where they were needed most. Thank you so much for saving room to bring them with you. I am so happy to hear that you made it back safely. I will be sure to share the email you sent with my church family. They will be thrilled to hear!

I am working on making another shipment of dresses with some of my groups. We cannot wait to get you more dresses for more little princesses that are so deserving of them. Soon enough I will send them out to you.

Many blessings Rachel! Thank you again for the update.

Gods Peace,

Good Afternoon Rachel,

Mr. Andrew told me about the items he collected from you. I pray that one day you’ll be able to understand the impact of what you doing to the children in Cameroon. We will be shipping the container as soon as it is full.

Thank you very much for your humanitarian work
Many blessings for 2012!
Sincerely, Mercy
