Stewardship is more than giving money. Our Christian faith tells us that what we do to the least of these, our brothers and sisters, we do to Christ. Most of us have absolutely no concept of what genuine poverty is – where we have no job, no prospect of a job, and we do not know whether we will eat today or tomorrow. The future for these people lies with education, but young girls have special needs in order to go to school. To meet these needs Epworth Church has an informal group known as the “Sewing Sisters” which meets periodically to make hygiene kits or to be more precise – reusable sanitary pads. These kits are taken by Epworth Church members to Haiti where they teach a class on how to use the kit and distribute them to the girls.
We can always use more volunteers to help us. You don’t have to know how to sew in order to help in making and assembling the kits. We need people to cut, sew, iron, fold, assemble, and pack the units.
