"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."

Cargo in Kenya
We have been in Kenya week now Distributing the cargo of 700 sewing machines we sent over last
year. They waited for us to come open it after the violence. Peace has settled over the area and the kenyans are
eager to get moving. Thank GOD it has arrived intact; everything we sent made it! We have been going 12 hours a day
meeting with all the members of the centers driving in to receive thier share, going over the programs etc. We have
distributed over 150 machines to our 6 outreaches in Kenya plus the 350 machines to our main partner CITAM and a
missionary from Tanzania came up to take back 20 machines for outreaches there. They called me today to say they made
it back OK.across the boarder. You might imagine the logistical planning all this has taken for many months. God has
favored it all by His incredible timing to have all these people show up from 100s' of miles away In an area far
remote from Nairobi to do all this .Even the Maasais' came from Maasailand. It was soo good to see them ,Pastor William
Luka and Timothy from Ngoswani. It would have been impossible without God and cell phones to do all
this. It appears now that around 150+ sewing machines will be in production within 2 months producing an amount to keep
Threads of Hope - Africa sustainable. Praise God, Only He could have arrange such a plan to come together. Being
obidient to His Word has been the key for all this to happen, no question!
