Peace is from one of the French speaking countries in Africa. She was smuggled into Greece with the promise of a good job and better life to support her daughter and family back home.
When she arrived in Athens, however, she found herself stranded with no work and no home. Through one of our contacts, she came to Threads of Hope and we have watched her grow and excel in sewing in strides. It is hard to believe that the first couple of weeks she struggled even holding scissors. We have watched her grow in her skill and confidence and are grateful to the Lord for grace and her very teachable heart.
Thanks to a good friend of the ministry, Peace is now learning English as a second language. She is also training to take on more leadership at Threads, which we pray will empower her to reach her full potential.
In her own words, “I thought I knew and understood l’amour de Dieu jusqua maintenant (the love of God until now). Since coming here and being part of the Bible study, I now can say I do understand because it has not only been a word but has been demonstrated to me by everyone.”
Please join us in praying for Peace and her family at home, especially her daughter– that God will protect and shield her from abuse.
