Mission Trip to Africa
Jess traveled to Africa with Mustard Seed Faith Community Ministries to teach impoverished women how to quilt in order that these ladies may provide for their families and care for children in their villages who are orphaned. Many quilters came together to donate sewing and quilting supplies for the women and blankets for some of the children.
"We partner with a local church in Iganga, Uganda whose purpose is to decrease the cycle of spiritual and economic poverty. A ministry that started with one sewing machine and 6 women has grown into a ministry that empowers over 270 women and men through small group education in spiritual, economic and social issues."
