Days for Girls

We have been really blessed to partner with our local chapter of Days for Girls in Kapunda South Australia

Our dear friend Deb has welcomed us with open arms to Kapunda Craft and Hope Sewing Days!

It has been so exciting to meet and sew and be given over 50 kits to take for free to Baseco this year.

I have been able to share the time with my daughter (9 years old) who has enjoyed thoroughly using an overlocker and zooming up liners for Days for Girls Kits…..makes her part of the ministry in Baseco. That is big in her world!

The kits are ingenious, they are fully recyclable allowing girls to wash and reuse their pads without any ongoing costs for sanitary items . They are simply beautiful as well! All easy to use and pretty to look at housed in a discreet cotton backpack!

All I can say is that I am grateful for ladies who love to sew with a purpose!

Not to mention the beautiful quilts made and singlets collected for me.

Fruit of The Barossa

The Barossa Rotary Club in the recent past has sponsored some Births

They are beginning to filter through as well

See THIS PAGE for details

This birth was a first though

Baby Janine received one of many hand sown, waterproofed backed quilts from our dear and treasured Barb Granzien in The Barossa Valley

Barb has had a deep burden for these gorgeous mum’s and babies in the Manilan slum, she cannot go……she is one of our and wiser women in the church!! , but she can SEW!

This dear woman has sewn 15 or more EXQUISITE quilts for these gorgeous BBBabies. All with a sweet note of love and a scripture on the back!

It does not take much to make a difference but Barb has! Used the gift that God has given her and used it to bless others!

I am excited, anyone can do it!

Everyone can make a difference!

The Barossa has great fruit flowing from it, not just physically but spiritually!

One way you can help……

Mark just posted a brilliant article on the effect of vitamin deprivation in babies in the womb. It is a well documented fact that ample vitamins and minerals areĀ  linked to higher IQ, of course good general health and flourishing babies andĀ  lots lots more.

BBBabies are constantly on the prowl for Pregnancy and Breastfeeding Vitamins, we find that the Aussie gear is supremely better than the Vitamins we can source in the Philippines.Copyright (c) <a href='http://www.123rf.com'>123RF Stock Photos</a>

We use any brand, we also use low date and have even used slightly out of date tablets as they are without a doubt BETTER than what we are able to source locally. Whole or half bottles work too, I remember only using half of my vitamins when I was pregnant. Chat to me either way……as long as postage does not make it uneconomical it may be an option.

We have seen first hand how the babies in Baseco who have access to vitamins are bigger at birth, chubby as they get older, they are alert and much much happier than their baby friends who do not get any at all. They are alert and awake at birth also, this would add to a better breastfeeding outcome…….so many babies have no strength to suck as they are born malnourished rather than NOURISHED and content, ready for a vigorous first and subsequent feeds!

So if you are looking for a away to help this may be another way you can help us

Pray and ask God

More soon
