We look forward to coming back to share updates later on in 2019! Thank you so much for inviting us!

Ladies Christmas Tea with Faith Alliance in Goldsboro, NC

We appreciated spending time with the ladies of Faith Alliance Church in Goldsboro, North Carolina! On December 1st, we enjoyed sharing the work of the organization in Kenya and Mexico along with the plans that are underway at this time. After sharing the organization the ladies learned how to make the paper beaded jewelry the women make in Kenya with our Founder, Jennifer Wiley and Treasurer, Xiomara Laureano. We had a great time in fellowship with these ladies and appreciate the continued prayers for the ground work and women and girls served around the world!
