About 500 million people speak Hindi in India and abroad, which makes this one of the most spoken languages in the world.
July 25- August 10, Jenny and Kadie Arnez, Annie Callen and I will be surrounded by Hindi speakers. We will be in northwest India with LINC Ministries to encourage and help women and children in the name of Jesus.
One thing I am especially excited about is raising money for and then buying 60 sewing machines. We will buy them in India. Can you believe they only cost $60 each?
LINC Ministries operates four sewing centers. At these centers battered women are given a new chance at life. They are taught the skill of sewing. Upon graduation they receive a sewing machine of their own so they may provide an honorable living for themselves.
In order to buy the machines and pay for the other expenses of the trip we are having another yard sale. This one will include a car wash. The date is Saturday, May 18 at Cordova Neighborhood Church. We are still taking yard sale donations!

I don’t know how to say “Thank you” in Hindi (yet). But I can in English, “Thank You!”
I thank you in advance for your prayer and support. You are helping make it possible for us to assist children and women in India and to do so well.
