***Karen Boland was blessed to be able to travel with three of her daughters, Ellyn, Ruth,
and Naomi in the summer of 2016. They were joined by teacher Natalie Elliot and friends
of the Bolands, Emily Terrones and Denali Gardner.
The team hosted a sewing clinic with the ladies of the church. This has continued after the
team returned and the women have even been teaching women in the village fellowships!
They even produced dresses to take to many children in the village of Bayama.
The team also hosted business training seminar where the participants learned to plan a
business, secure a loan, produce a product, market and sell the product. The participants
actually created business groups and went through the whole process with supplies
brought by the team! As a result, we have several more potential loans!
