UPDATE:Â The first picture is in from Ghana!Â Though this little girl is not needy, I think she is the daughter of Ghanese pastor who hosts the mission team.Â Gayle had said this child would be given first choice.Â She certainly looks pleased. Her father reported that she didn’t want to take offÂ the dress and slept in it!
What an exciting, satisfying project this has been!Â Since the end of Feb. a group of ladies and 4 children of River City Church, EPC, have gathered every Thursday to sew for the needy children of Ghana. Our goal was to make 100 garments. We finished the last week in May with 76 dresses and 44 pairs of shorts!
Our efforts were in support of this summer’s second medical mission trip to Ghana, led by a church member Dr. Lyle Wadsworth and his nurse wife Gayle.
NOTE:Â Please excuse the wrinkled dresses.Â The garments were pressed before being hung on the clothesline. But after being packed for shipment to Ghana, many were unpacked to be photographed.Â It was just too time consuming to iron all of them.
