In 2008, I made a trip to Tanzania. While I was there, I met a Great Man of God, who devoted his life to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with everyone he met. He was in need of a building and I promised to do what I could to help. Knitting for Tanzania is my attempt to help him build a church building. All profits from sales of my knits go directly to help with his building project.

It seems like my whole week has
been one of sadness and pain. The beautiful lady pictured above, (in the brown and blue stripe) is my friend Rebeca's daughter in law. They were reunited when we made our trip to Tanzania this fall. While we were there, Star became very ill. The Dr. said she had endemetriosis. She has been sick all this time. This week, we received word that she is in the hospital hemorrhaging. Tonight I received a phone call telling me that Star is bleeding from her eyes, ears, nose and mouth. Please keep her in your prayers. She is the mother of four small children. In the difficult circumstances they already live in, it will be even worse if the children loose their mother.
