Our sewing volunteers have really been on a summer kick here recently because within the past week the Dorcas Ministry: Sewing For Jesus has received over 1,200 hand sewn items! How amazing is that?!?
From Arizone to Indiana, there are volunteers from all over the United States that send hand sewn items for the Dorcas Ministry, and those volunteers are incredibly talented. We are extremely thankful for the time, effort, and hard work that each individual sews into each clothing item.
The items HHI can use are children's shorts, skirts, and dresses, school bags, dolls, diapers, baby blankets, knit hats, and feminine hygiene kits. These handmade items are then included in shipments to missionaries, hospitals, orphanages and churches around the world. Plus, many of them fill our MAGI boxes!
Can you imagine the impact that a hand sewn item has on a child? Whether the climate is warm or cold, the hand sewn items made from our volunteers are a blessing no matter where they end up.
If you want to learn more about the Dorcas, be on the look out for more blog posts and check out the "Women of Hope" section under "What We Do" on the homepage of our website!
