Freedom Project update

The women on the Freedom project course have been learning to sew.
As they sew they also learn patience.
Patience with themselves, others in the class and their teacher. This is something they may not have been able to practice before, but is a significant skill that is needed when stepping out of addiction and prostitution.
They also receive acceptance and love from the teacher and others in the class.
All of these things raise their self esteem making lasting change possible. All of this through learning to sew!
Thank you for supporting this  project. Alison will be out in Rwanda next week and will be spending time with the women.

Christmas food hampers

Alison and Richard have collected Christmas food hampers this week. Stowmarket and Area Foodbank have generously donated these hampers. We will be distributing these next week to some of the vulnerable women that Alison has ministered to for many years through our Chaplaincy project that meets and cares for women involved in the sex industry.

Christmas is often the loneliest time of year when you have battled with addiction and the dark places that can lead you into. Many have children but don’t have access to them and with all the media hype about a perfect family Christmas this can lead to deep sadness and despair. So it is wonderful that we are able to visit next week and take a gift to bless the women and pray with them.
