SnippetS from around the world

A few months ago, I wrote you about making pillow case dresses and taking them with me(originally I was going to Kenya) to Uganda in April. I am going with Operation Christmas Child on a shoe box distribution. A few ladies from my church have gotten together weekly to sew and fellowship. We now have 276 little dresses – far more than I will be able to pack in my luggage!  I will probably put most of the others in shoe boxes next November. But I want you to know what a blessing it has been to make these dresses! Over the weeks our “designers” really got busy and we have some delightfully decorated dresses – and we have woven our own  little stories around each dress. Did you know that the arm hole cut outs make perfect little pockets on the dresses?

Just wanted you to know that about 200 dresses and 50 pairs of little boys shorts will be heading out for Uganda soon.

God bless you – this is an amazing project!

If I am able to get some pictures, I will send them to you.

Papua New Guinea

I received the box of dresses today.  They are gorgeous and I know the little girls in Papua New Guinea will be so excited.  I wish I could be there to see their faces.  May God bless you much.  Audry


It has been my joy to make these dresses for little girls all over the world and it is my hope that they will know that people in the United States care about them.  Thank you for doing this wonderful work and I know you are truly blessed for it.  I have enclosed a check to help with shipping.  Thank you.  Judy in California


Dear Rachel,

I wanted to let you know that the village in Isiolo, Kenya received the package of clothing and they were so delighted!  Their leader, Chili, said they were so happy, she wished she had a camera to send us the pictures of the children’s faces!

A huge thank you to you and all of the people that make this wonderful cause successful!!!!



These dresses were prayerfully and lovingly sewn by ladies of the Agape Circle, Congregation, and friends of Immanuel Presbyterian church in Tucson, Arizona. We pray that the girls and young women who receive them will feel God’s love and will be comforted and strengthened by His grace.

Here are a few dresses that my friend and I made last summer. We hope they brighten the faces of some little girls, as they sure helped brighten our day to make them. We pray for God’s blessings on your important mission.
In praise and thanksgiving.

Enclosed find 8 dresses. They are sized and packaged and a check is enclosed for shipping…
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to help and for giving me the opportunity to teach my granddaughters to sew ehile at the same time making a valuable contribution. The girls felt like they ere doing soemthing worthwhile with their time.
