"Lord equip us to teach those in need, that which would
be pleasing to You. Restore dignity, sense of purpose, and hope, as they learn new skills and grow; so they too can
become givers after recieving a hand-up, not a hand-out. May they know that the motivation of our action is Your
love for them and it is Your will that all men be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth. Amen."
Al Barrett and his wife were on the first leg of a mission trip to Tanzania and Kenya in 1998. Seated next
to Al was a Jewish man who happened to be a Lawyer from Detroit. Before he left the plane in Detroit he reached into
his wallet, gave Al some money, and said, "Put this where it will sow in the Kingdom of God". With the money,
Al bought the first sewing machine for a tribe near Mount Kilimanjaro called the Chagga people. The Jewish man
told Al he was being led by the Holy Spirit to give a donation.
That seed money has
now grown to a mountain of donated thread, materials, and sewing machines. Approximately $80,000 worth of
thread alone and hundreds and hundreds of sewing machines, both electric and foot petal, have been donated.
Now the promise of free fabric has come. We have been praying and believing that God would reveal where and who will
receive it. Now it is unfolding.
