Spinning cotton yarn in Guatemala.  Drop spindles are not that common anymore in Guatemala because the weavers and spinners usually buy yarn.  However many of the weavers we work with dye their yarn with natural dyes made from plants, vegetables, fruits etc.  They make beautiful weavings which are turned into purses, napkins, placemats and so much more.

We love it when we have lots of little ones for Vacation Bible School!  The little children are so precious and we have so much fun with them in VBS! You really should go on one of our Mission Trip...

Yes, that is what we hear from our women's groups.  "When are you coming back again!"  We recently began a new mothers and toddler's Bible study and the women have told us how much they really love...
