The Beginning of the Yard Sale Ministry
We had some clothing donated from a couple in The States and instead of just giving to everyone, we decided to sell it super inexpensive so that the women learn how to bless others in their community, budget their own money, run a mini business, work together as a team, and work hard. We have done 3 of these sales and they have been phenomenal! The ladies LOVE it and the community is super blessed as well. The prices are extremely low and the quality of the clothing is really good. The ladies have raised almost $400 which they tithed tonight to the church for the first time. They also donated their first $100 made to a lady in the community who is extremely ill and needs her rent paid.
We are seeing so much fruit from this core group of women and the Lord is doing an amazing work in their lives and in the lives of their families. Men who have never come to church EVER are now coming. These women are bringing their children and their moms to church. They are learning to depend on one another in prayer--to do life together--and to have a support system.
My cup runneth over as I am allowed to witness God's grace and love and blessing being poured out over this group! Please continue to pray for each one...the daily battles they face are great, but our God is greater!!
Here are some of my girls at Christmas time showing off their ornaments they made
