Each year at Grace Family Church we take part in the Buckets of Hope initiative. Members of the church buy buckets then fill them with groceries for missions partners to distribute. In these buckets are bags of maize, harvested and milled by those who have come through Farming God's Way training - at the mill that Grace Family Church have generously been able to support.
This year the opportunity was given to screen print the Grace logo on a drawstring bag which would then hold the bags of maize. Men and women were identified to sew and print these bags - learning a new skill and earning an income.
The sewers and printers were given this opportunity to come in for paid contract work to make these items; while honing their new skills. It was incredible to to see their progress and we want to acknowledge our partners in this, The Wellness Centre Trust and Salt & Light Crafts.
These bags have blessed many families before they have even landed in the buckets, to go out and bless other families.
