How many dresses can fit in a suitcase? There are 80 in this one.
In addition we squeezed in 18 pairs of shorts and oodles of sewing supplies – binding/bias tape, zippers, velcro, seam rippers and embroidery thread.
I’m happy to share with you that this package is officially on its first leg of the journey to Uganda. I dropped it off this morning with Amy Koestner of Grimes United Methodist Church. She is blessing us by taking our suitcase with her on a mission trip to Kampala, Uganda. If you want to read the cool back-story on this one, you can check it out here.
We are also wiring a donation of $200 to Faith Power Assembly Church in Iganga, Uganda. $75 will be designated for the purchase of a sewing machine for the vocational school they desire to open and the rest will be used for continuing construction needs in rebuilding their church facility. Our donation will be combined with that of a donation from Mingo United Methodist Church, and we plan to split the cost of the wire. (This is also a cool story, but I’ll save that for another day.)
Thanks for all who have been so generous to our ministry. I can’t wait to share pictures from Florence after she receives the suitcase 🙂
