Rahab’s Rope is seeing such incredible, God-sized dreams come true in India. Women are being freed from prostitution and finding hope in Christ! They are making beautiful items and earning an income they can be proud of. Women of God, don’t we want to rise up and let them know we applaud them, support them, and stand with them? Timbali Crafts is staying faithful and true to their calling, giving 100 amazing women a job making functional and beautiful items from African cloth, so that these same women, mostly widows, can volunteer all day at the local orphanages. We can minister to them by simply buying some birthday and Mother’s Day gifts from them instead of Target!! 🙂
We don’t usually do parties in the Spring, but I don’t think I’ll be able to do it in the Fall, so here we go! There will probably only be a handful of parties but I am excited about getting together and blessing these ladies as much as we can. This blog post is simply to provide all the info you need if you are hosting or attending a party. I will post parties and info on the Sister Bridge Facebook page as they are scheduled.
Who and What is Sister Bridge?
Sister Bridge is simply a “middle-woman” helping women in need sell their crafts. Missionary organizations are working with women to free them from human trafficking or help them earn an income with a respectable skill, and they need people to help them sell their beautiful handmade items! We have been doing this for several years now and have sent back $50,000 to these ministries, 100% of the money going to the women themselves as these ministries are financially supported through other means (churches, families, etc.) We mainly do home parties or booths at events, and just for a small season of the year. This Spring we will be specifically supporting the ministries of Timbali Crafts and Rahab’s Rope.
How You Can Help
Host a party and invite your friends, co-workers, neighbors, and church family! It can be at a women’s event at your church or at your home, it doesn’t matter. You give out invitations or make a Facebook party page, and perhaps make some snacks 🙂 I will bring all the inventory and take care of the money side of things. Yay! I will mail you invitations once we have put something on the calendar!
What to Except Regarding Prices and Products
I will have aprons, bags, purses, overnight totes/diaper bags, children’s purses/aprons, one type of new colorful beaded bracelet and a small assortment of summer scarves. I will not have Beads of Java jewelry this time or COI card sets. The prices are great gift prices, ranging from $13 to $37. Most items are in the $15-$20 range and it is very good quality stuff! Every item will be individually priced. I can take checks or cash, and in some cases (depending on the Wi-Fi) I can take credit cards with a 4% fee.
Please just let me know if you have any questions! You can always send people to our Facebook page or sisterbridge.org if they would like more information, too. Hope to see you soon as we get the opportunity to bless these women together.
