Comments: Hello,I am a missionary along with my husband, Steve, in Windhoek, Namibia. I am working with some refugee mommas at Osire Refugee Camp here in Namibia. I'm teaching them to sew. I have heard from a fellow missionary with Mission Ventures, Mike in Arandis, that you provide sewing machines to villages in some areas of Africa. I wonder if the Refugee Camp ladies might qualify as recipients? They are primarily from the DRC, Zimbawbwe, and Angola. I would appreciate any help you can offer. In Christ's name, Pam Brown

Musa had told me he had gone to 10 villages to preach the gospel and 5 people gave their lives to Jesus since he received the bike. Samuel said he had gone to 9 villages and 5 salvations, Timothy went to 8 villages and 5 salvations. PTL that He is using the Bikes to spread the Good News. We can't wait to see you again. We love you and we are praying for you." Love William

Comments: We are thankful and blessed to have just completed another sucessful Sewing training mission to La Ceiba Honduras a week ago. There were many months and weeks of preparation. Four ladies and myself carried all we could in our baggage, training manuals; 3 more sewing machines, etc. bringing to 15 they now have at the center. 6 ladies and two intereptors received the training. While the women taught the dress making pattern system I worked on the mission boat, repaired 5 sewing machines, built a seat for a motorbike and set up the 3 new machines. We will be sending a double pallet of fabric and machines in a few weeks. Help with the cost of shipping would be most appreciated for the widows and needy being served through our MVI Missionaries in Honduras. Blessings Al

Comments: Wow!This year is off to a fast start. We attended our MVI World conference in Orlando in Jan. It was great to be with our missionaries from around the world. We are able to help with a coulple of their projects one in South East Asia and one in south Africa. A sewing training team has been training and preparing to go to La Ceiba, Honduras in March. Much is developing for this New Threads of Hope - Honduras Sewing Training Center. A great event just happend in Masailand. Our Threads - Africa team presented 3 new 125Suzuki motorcycles to Maasai Pastors in the Maasai Maralast week. This brings to 8 motorcycles for them in ten years of us ministering in their area of kenya. A major, major impact in their vast and remote community. God is Blessing them and providing them ways to bring "His Word" to the unreached.

Comments: Recently I accompanied a mission group to Kenya, where we brought sewing machines for a group meeting at an orphanage near Bondo. Forty eight women arrived for sewing lessons on eight treadle machines. I have taught sewing before, but never to that many at one time! We divided the women into groups and each group had a leader who could sew some already. I showed the leaders what to do and they in turn taught their small group. It was so thrilling to see them at work in their groups and they did not want to leave at the end of the day! Women need other women for support. They have organized three different groups to continue learning and are selling things they have made. Several of the women accepted Jesus that week and that was the best part.

Comments: (TEN YEARS LATER) This month has a milestone event for Threads of Hope. A Children's designer clothing line, and hand bags, is being sold in Meijer Dept. stores in 9 cities in the U. S. for the first time. They are made by widows we trained on sewing machines we sent to Kenya. Praise God!!! And imagine this: A mand (a Jewish lawyer from Detroit ) called me to say he was in Ann Arbor Mich. and went into a Meijer Dept. store because God told him to pull into that store. He went up to the display by www.2Fysh.com and purchased a hand bag. Attached to the bag was a story of the widow who malde the handbag. This man (the Jewish lawyer) is the man that gave me the seed money on an airplane on my way to Africa 10 years ago that bought the first sewing machine for a widow in Tanzania. If you go to www.2Fysh.com and cick on "meet Winnie" you will see and hear our main sewing trainer in Keserian, Kenya. Thank you to all our supporters.

Comments: This needs to go out: It is from our MVI missionaries in Uganda, Rex and Melinda Guynn. "Rex and I want to give you a little update on the sewing machines that we have here in Uganda. One of the embroidery machines was given to one who is an experienced tailor in Northern Uganda and is a survivor of the rebel war that recently plagued that region. She has a brother who has never been interested in anything, sort of a bum really, and he has become very interested in this machine and even helps her in the shop. Praise the Lord! Who would have known this would be his key to sucess!"

We distributed 150 sewing machines to 8 of our centers in Kenya and one from Tanzania. A businessman from the States was there to begin sewing contracts for the centers. Many are being blessed with jobs after the turmoil the country just went through. thank God for this provision and thank you all that pray and partner with us. There is more inventory for future outreaches as Threads of Hope - Africa continues to grow!

Comments: We Accomplished more than expected during our Honduras mission trip April 11th. We helped set up the sewing center and made sails for the local fishermen and a boat top for the launch being made at the mission station. They will use it to go up river to show the Jesus film. We will send a team in Sept to teach a garment making system. We just attended another great conference at Global Family Fellowship in Dunedin. We are in our tenth year as a ministry. for more, sign up for our newsletters. Blessings Al ><>

Comments: Thank the Lord Kenya is now moving forward again and peace has come. There are trouble makers in some areas just as you see on these postings. We trust in God to lead us. We are planning a trip there soon. We sent funds to the widow of our friend who was murdered. She sent a thank you e-mail to all who gave after receiving the money from our administrator in Nairobi. We are partenering with and MVI couple in Honduras to begin a sewing training center in Honduras. Pray for the needs to be met. God has opened the door and much has already been acomplished. We have received much fabric and equipment for this outreach. Praise the Lord!

Comments: PRAY FOR KENYA As many of you now know, Kenya is in chaos and turmoil. Our ministry work there is on idle . It has become too dangerous to move around the country. Projects are on hold until we know the Lord wants us to continue. Everyone there is in a survival mode and we must turn our attention to meet their needs in a different way other than sewing training and equipping. Fortunately the container we sent is secure on church property outside Nairobi. This inventory will be more significant than ever once we start our mission work again. A sad personal note for Threads of Hope - Africa. One of our project managers was shot and killed in front of his wife and two children on Christmas in Nairobi. Robbers in the midst of the turmoil. He was the liaison for the Mikinduri project; Children's home and sewing center there. We are sending funds for the children's education. Pray for the church leadership and their will being, this an enormous need.. Pray for those in surrounding countries, as they are being affected as well and our ministries there. Pray for our upcoming mission work beginning in Honduras. We have sent equipment and supplies and will be sending teams in the future. I will be there in April. Praise God for bringing more monthly supporters and volunteers to Threads of Hope. Praise the Lord for the enoumous donations of material etc. recently, the first semi-load of fabric is headed our way. Much of that will go to Honduras and central America. Let us focus on the mountain mover and not on the mountain. God Bless all of you who are praying and helping us to make a difference. We are now in our tenth year. Praise God. "Sowing with His word" Al Barrett, Dir. Threads of Hope

Comments: Touchdown! FINALLY the 40ft. container made it through customs and is sitting secured on church property, Praise the Lord! It has been a grueling project from sending to receiving. I tell you it feels to me like landing on the moon. I am so excited for those the Lord is blessing through this sewing project. We hope to start the distribution (700 sewing machines fabric etc) soon and begin to equip the centers for production to bring income to the widows and orphans outreaches to prostitutes; and the less fortunate. We will begin new centers as well. Thanks to all for the needed funding for all this to happen up to now. We will need support in the future to begin new centers with the inventory we now have in Kenya. Pray for us for good health and energy to complete this program to the point where the Africans will be able to be self sufficient and sustainable as Threads of Hope - Africa. Blessings to All, Asante Sana Al ><>

Comments: Thanks to all who have given prayerfully and financially. A recent progress report and support letter we sent helped to raise the funds for the container project. Praise the Lord. God is good to supply the needs of Threads of Hope - Africa to help the widows and orphans. As I write our colleage is in Kenya attending meetings and laying the ground work for sewing contracts at our existing centers and for the pending ones being formed. We plan to follow up the containers arrival in OCT. the Kenya team is very excited and ready to move forward. We are thankful to our Lord and Saviour who has provided and touched the hearts of so many who are helping. Here is a recent sctriputre I find appropriate and timley. Corin 3:10-11 " By the Grace God has given me. I have laid a foundation as as expert builder and someone else is building on it. But each one should be careful how he builds. For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ." Blessings Al <><

Comments: It's hard to believe it has been 5 months since our last posting. It has been an incredible busy time preparing the shippment to Kenya. God is good and has given us the strength and fellow helpers to pack and send the sea container. It has been months of e-mails, negoitiations and trips to the Fla. east coast to prepare the cargo of sewing machines. It was sent off a month ago and is due to arrive in Kenya any day. We are planning to make a follow up trip when it arrives. Much is being developed with the leadership in the Kenyan churches to start sewing co-ops to bring income to the widows and orphans. God willing we will have 3 to 5 producing centers by the end of the year. This will impact hundreds of lives making the Gospel alive to those who receive God's blessing. We thank you for your prayers and financial support. Al <><

Comments: Since we arrived back from Kenya at the end of Dec. we have been busy at mission conferences, mission dinners and making many contacts and follow up with our sewing ministry work in Kenya and around the Globe. We are currently in the process of purchasing and shipping a 40 ft sea container to Kenya to serve our Sewing Centers there and to broaden the out reaches to neighboring countries. We are sending many new sewing machines,sewing related items, fabric, etc school books,and more. We have partnered with one of the largest Christian Churches in Nairobi to extend Threads of Hope -Africa to Tanzania, Uganda and Rwanda and Ghana. Our staff in Kenya is preparing for this increase and are praising God for the miracle. Thank you for your prayers, together we are making a difference. If you can help with the shipping costs it would be great. Call or e-mail me for more info. or a copy of our latest news letter. God Bless

Comments: I am just the average stay at home mom of 3 and a bricklayers wife residing in the DFW, TX area, I am interested in donating about a trash bag full of quilting and dressmaking scraps and pieces all perfect for quilting. I also have 2 broken sewing machines both good solid older models (one needs a new cord and the other does not feed) I would also like to inform you that many DALLAS industrial sewing shops give DUMPSTERS of usable scraps away for FREE! Look on Craigslist.org (Global) and look under FREE items, you'll be pleasently suprised as to how much fabric goes into the trash! Let me know if the things I have could help out and if there may be a drop off in DFW to save on shipping?

Comments: Many thanks to all who are helping us to continue our expanding mission work in Kenya, East Africa. We returned last week from two weeks of exciting ministry at our Sewing centers as well as several important meetings. What a way to top off the year! We met with the board of directors of Christ is the Answer Ministries in Nairobi. Thier new administrator is a lawyer, we really bonded. and were able to lay the ground work for future ministry development in Kenya and surrounding countries. We brought two new embroidery machines funded by Countryside Christian Center as well as four other new sewing machines. We purchased rolls of fabric, factory direct as well as additional foot pedal machines and sewing thread that we delivered. Also we brought gift bags for the pastors wives and "Care Bears" for the orphans. We met with church leaders of two new areas of the country that we will partner with to begin two more sewing training centers.A total of six. For the first time we had all our pastor/leaders together for a meeting in Nairobi. I called it the meeting of "The Big Five". We laid more ground work for future ministry development in Kenya. We gave our testimonies in the churches we visited ad I preachied a message in Maasailand. We attended a Maasai wedding, colorful to say the least; around one thousand attended during a break in the weather; it is rainy season. The road "trail" there would be impassible if it had rained that day. Our Maasai son, Jeremiah was blessed that day to be married in his home village. He married a lady from Tanzania, forming a bond between two important families. A Maasai Dr. we know gave a moving salvation messasge. The other Doctor; Dr. Jeremiah now has a lovely Christian wife, Praise the Lord. We did have obsticles and challenges, we are home safe and blessed to have served once again in such an awesome ministry! Thank you Lord and thanks to many of you for your prayers and support.

Comments: Much monentum is taking place for Threads of Hope in Africa and around the world. Gail and I and Melonny will leave for Kenya Dec. 5th to 18th for continuing mission work there. We will minister in our current sewing centers and visit two new locations at orphanages where we will begin new sewing centers. An answer to prayer has come our way. We have come in partenership with another mission that is helping to distribute hundreds of sewing machines. God has provided a great miracle for those in need. We have our work cut out for us. What a priviledge it is to serve. Join and help us if you can, what a blessing it would be. Mungu akubariki sana ( may God bless you greatly)

Comments: "They are off and running those sewing machines" in Kenya and Tanzania. The women many of you helped sponser for sewing training at Threads of Hope Keserian are now back in thier respective villages and are off to a great start with sewing projects. I just received e-mails from the Pastors there. Pastor Nanyaro sent us a concise report of the expenses and the work they are now under way with. They are making place mats, dolls, aprons, and mens shirts. They have further need for fabric and thread. Pastor Nanyaro is building a mission station for the Bushmen (Hadzabe people). We hope to help reach these unreached people with the Gospel. Pray for this project. An e-mail from Pastor Opicho in Nakuru is filled with exciting news. The two women who recently went for training are now helping in the sewing training center. Pastor Opichos' Church All Nations Church,has has 14 satellite churches west and east Kenya all eager to have thier "sewing projects" as well. Pastor recently returned from Uganda and has spoken to me about reaching out there as well as other surrounding countries. They are an "on fire" group of sewers (sowers too) Sowers of the world - UNITE! Everyone there expresses a heart filled Thank You! Your help and support is making a big difference the lives of widows and orphans and indigenous Pastors in Africa. May God Bless You Greatly Mungu akubariki sana Sewing with the "Word" Al

Comments: This week four women are completing two months sewing training at our Threads of Hope - Africa center in Keserian. Two will return to Tanzania to begin a new sewing outreach there. We are funding this project. We still need another $800 for supplies. Two other women return to Nakuru to be a part of our Threads of Hope - Africa sewing center at All Nations Church. The women from this group sent us 34 African shirts to raise more funds for the widows and orphans and their sewing center. For a $150 donation you can receive a shirt to remind you of how you helped a widow or orphan to earn a living. The $150 will buy a foot pedal sewing machine and items needed to begin a tailoring business for a widow or an orphan. These shirts were made on this very type machine enabled by your giving. We have a limited amount left. Contact me to receive one. Checks are to be made to Missionary Ventures. memo: Threads of hope - Africa Praise the Lord. Blessings Al

Comments: Have seen your brochure and wondering what it takes to be eligible for consideration. My church is a small church with 20women who are willing to improve the quality of life but are constrained because of lack of money and/or material equipment. How can one be eligible or meet your criteria of selection.

Comments: 1. USA Some have asked. "do we ever do anything in the USA?" Yes we do. I have been involved more in Africa personally and Russia; however Threads of Hope has been active in 20 countries and in the USA. More fabric and machines were went to Tutwiller Mississippi to a group of women who are sewing quilts to earn a living. They have been doing very good at this for several years now. This sewing outreach is through a missionary Dr. I met several years ago; Dr. Anne Brooks. A friend of our mission Threads of Hope, Dr. Susan Grenz this spring, drove a van load of donated items to them, including sewing machines and fabrics and stayed a week volunteering at the clinic there. 2. USA I contacted our friend Pastor Neil Bernard of New Wine Fellowship in LaPlace La. after the storm Katrina. His facility became the main headquarters of the relief in his parrish. Since; we've arranged for MVI involvement there to help in the aftermath of Katrina. Teams continue to go, led by Jackie Jackson, Bo Cooksey and Glen Dubois of the Missionary Ventures Orlando office. Contact them if you would like to serve here in the good ole USA. 3. Can't leave out Kenya. The first of this year we were able to arrange for 2 more Suzuki (125)motorcycles to be given to our Maasai Pastor friends in Naikarra Kenya . Our administrator in Nairobi Yaw Boaten helped to purchase and deliver them personally. They were funded by the Christian Motorcycle association . We are grateful for their partnership, Praise the Lord! This transportation in wilderness areas like the Maasai Mara helps to reach thousands of people with the Gospel. One of our Maasai Pastors is a nurse practitioner and treated 3,000 children last year in his surrounding area all because of the motorcycle he received. Mungu Akubariki sana (may God Bless you greatly.)

Comments: 5. Dominican Republic: in two weeks a couple from Fla will go to D.R. near the Haitian boarder to begin a sewing outreach there. Threads of Hope is guiding them in this effort. They have taken the sewing classes to learn to be trainers and are hand carrying with them 4 sewing machines and two sergers and sewing items. They will also purchase two treadle type machines in Santo Domingo for around $100 each. Pray for Wanda and her husband as they go as missionaries to the D.R. and Haiti. We hope to follow up these new sewing centers by sending teams at a later date. It takes $1500 to start sewing outreach $5,000 to begin a sewing training center. $400 to sponsor a widow or an orphan to go to a center for 2 months to learn a trade and Gods Word. $100 will buy a foot pedal type sewing machine so they can earn a living. (a hand up, not just a hand out) One Maasai widow once told me. " God has answered my prayer by sending one man with sewing machines that taught me how to sew. Now I can support myself and feed my children, and I thank God" and I thank all concerned with Threads of Hope" Mungu Akubariki sana; Swahilli for God bless you greatly. Through your continued prayers and support Threads of Hope is able to begin and follow up "His work with His Word"

Comments: Here's some recent events for Threads of Hope 1.We have arranged to sponsor two women from Tanzania,Africa to go to our sewing training center in Keserian Kenya. We are working with a local pastor in Tanzania and our missionary friend Terry Weaver to begin a sewing outreach near Ngorogoro crater in a wilderness area. 2.In North India we are working with a pastor there (Dinesh Chand) who presently has 4 sewing out reaches in various villages. We are helping to start two more sewing out reaches that will train 24 women for the next year for the amount of $1,000. 3. In Kenya. by the end of the year we hope to begin another sewing training center at an orphanage that is currently being built in Mikinduri,Kenya. A friend of the ministry has pledged $5,000 to fund the sewing training center. PTL 4. We are sponsoring one woman from Nakuru to go to our Threads of Hope - Africa sewing training center in Keserian.outside Nairobi. Pastor Opicho has asked us if we could sponsor one more. The students go for 2 months training where they sleep and eat there. This is a great investment ; $400 to sponser a widow or orphan to learn a trade in a Godly environment hearing the "Word of God" each day as they learn.

Comments: We plan to go to Kenya in Dec. to minister to our centers and attend a Maasai wedding in Maasai land where this mission started. Our good friend Jeremiah Koshal PhD is going back to Kenya after studing here for 6 years. We call him our Maasai son and he calls me his USA dad. His one brother is a Pastor and the other is Chief; they are the community leaders we have been working with all these years. They are family to us and are thrilled for us to be there for this important event. In Maasai land a wedding is a huge event; especially one so prominent. Not many have formal education and are held in high respect. Jeremiah is a strong Christian and will stand in the gap for the Maasai Nation in Kenya and Tanzania. Other news: 1.We have sponsored 4 women who are now taking sewing training in Keserian; and are doing great. Two are from Tanzania where we will begin another sewing outreach, near Ngorogoro Crator. the begining of vast wilderness. 2.Another we will begin is near lake Victoria, Western Kenya, Funding was pledged by one of our sponsors. It will be in and opphanage being built. 3.The womens group from Nakuru sent to us 34 African shirts they made on the machines we brought them. We will use them for fund raising for Threads of Hope-Africa. Our African administrator from Nairobi Yaw Boaten was here last weekend. We went over our planning and finances for Threads of Hope-Africa. He has been a great help to our mission there. Praise the Lord. Al Barrett Threads of Hope Missionary Ventures International
