Removing the feathers so they can fly
The women in the sewing workshop also needed to start selling stuff this month. They ran out of fabric. But they had a closet of cloths they had made. So instead of sending more money for fabric I said to sell your cloths. And you know what? It worked! Every girl was required to sell what she has made. And with the money buy new fabric. They did it! They took a step away from dependence. I'm sure you know the story about the eagles. They line their nests with soft feathers. But under the feathers they have thorn bushes. And when it is time to teach the birds to fly the mother bird starts to remove the nice feathers. The good news is our women are starting to fly on their own. We still have 10 women waiting for a chance to start hairdressing school. But we have applied for grants. The best thing you can do for us is pray we get these grants. Right now we are living in a season of amazing possibilities. It may end up a bunch of nothing. But hopeful the possibilities will become sure realities.
