Has anyone called you a “loser” or made you feel low for your weaknesses? I hope not, but imagine the answer for many of you may be a sad “yes.”
Many women in Sierra Leone who are missing an arm, are blind or have leprosy are often told by their society that God hates them so He purposely cursed them with a disability. They live on the streets, in the darkness of despair and worthlessness.
Women of Hope International works to turn around that message, bringing – as their name says – hope.
After one year, with a break to focus on Ebola education, an amazing, 50-page, professionally illustrated training manual is complete.
This month, WOH executive director Kim Kargbo and her team are in Sierra Leone using this JAMSBooks designed and illustrated training manual to bring a message of education, dignity and divine love to these ladies.
Carol Jones, with Emmanuel Baptist Church here in Virginia, upon her return from
her March trip to Leogane, Haiti:
Good Morning Jean,
God is sooooo Good! We had a great mission trip to Haiti. The coloring books
were a great help. The area we visited was the epicenter of the earthquake.
We visited a school/church where 90% of the children’s parents were dead.
I will share some pictures as soon as I can. We taught at 2 schools in 3 days.
I even got to substitute teach the first day because the teacher was not feeling well.
Thanks to Ms. Kara Beam with Blessings International – we met at the Global
Missions Health Conference last November – JAMSBooks coloring books are new
products on their website! Click here to check it out. Blessings International heals the hurting globally and locally by providing
life-saving pharmaceuticals, vitamins and medical supplies to medical mission
teams, clinics and hospitals.
