> Ordinary Women Extroadinary Missions

>During our first morning in Lodwar we met Elizabeth and her husband Fritz, from Germany. They have been working with the orphans and local children on several levels. Elizabeth soon found, that daily, people were at the gate of her home needing food and help, mostly women. So she challenged them that she would not give out food without getting something in return. Now they come every week with their baskets. Many sizes, shapes and colors that they carefully weave under large shade trees. Elizabeth soon decided that instead of food she would give out money for them to buy their own food. We encouraged Elizabeth and helped with design ideas and opportunities for the women to begin learning the business for themselves. Then we stopped for lunch with some friends. Ally showed us the beautiful cards she is hand painting and decorating along with necklaces, bracelets that include natural seeds, beads and wooden animals. Also she is making beaded key chains. This is helping her to reach the youth in the area with practical skills and opportunities for future sustainability.
