The items in this month’s box come from a variety of people and ministries whose stories will grab hold of your heart. We are so thankful for the way your purchase is empowering vulnerable people around the world.
In your box you’ll find a fabric journal from Rahab’s Rope, a sheepskin or leather eyeglasses case from 2nd Story Goods, and a pineapple shaped dish made by our own artisan, Naw Moe. Rahab’s Rope is an amazing ministry that helps girls and women who have been forced into the commercial sex industry in India find restoration. The ministry begins by caring for these women emotionally and physically first, then providing education and skills training to help them re-enter their communities in a positive way.
2nd Story Goods is another ministry that is working to provide a better life for the people it serves. Based in Haiti, the ministry provides extremely impoverished women and families a way to earn a living wage. By giving them a new way to sell their handmade goods, 2nd Story Goods helps the most desperate families find hope and purpose.
Naw Moe is a refugee from Burma whose project for this month has taken on more significance than we imagined. Her pineapple dishes are more than a cute decoration (although they are that too!). The pineapple shape of the dish is a representation of hospitality and welcome, qualities that are vital to the mission of Anchor of Hope and other refugee ministries. This project was in the works before the Executive Order and refugee crisis was in the news, and the irony is not lost on us. We hope that you display this dish in your home as a reminder that we have the opportunity to bring change to the world when we are welcoming.
Thank you, again, for your support of Anchor Of Hope !
