Pad Donations - Winter 2018

Several years ago the Sew Quilt Share ministry
learned that girls in many third world countries miss a week of
school each month because they lack access to feminine hygiene products.

After learning about Mission Possible's outreach to girls in Haiti, 
our group decided to get involved. We began by posting a pattern online, 
shared details of our group sewing cloth feminine pads, and invited others to join us. 

We continue to be amazed at the response to that invitation,
and rejoice at how God is stirring the hearts of those who sew! 

The following packages were received by Gateway Church between 
12/1/17 - 3/31/18  from the following locations...

A gift of pads was sent to us by a customer of Sew Nice in Upper Sandusky, Ohio

Fifty lovely pads and five bags were sent to us by Norma from Lebanon, TN!
