New Sewing Machines donated to the CWC

Serving consistently allows us to develop personal relationships with those we serve. If serving regularly is not possible, it is good to be willing to contribute whatever we can. Even a little bit will help. We feel our service alone will say much about our faith.
This is a picture of the Chuuk Women's Council receiving 10 sewing machines from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The women here on Weno make beautiful skirts and muumuu dresses. A lot of the younger girls do not know how to sew. With the sewing machines they are going to teach the young people the island traditions. They are hoping to make and sell some for a fundraiser. The CWC is involved in many good causes like healthcare, safety and the enviroment.

This picture is of some of the Chuukese women from the main island and the outer islands.
Sister Archibald is here with her husband on a Humanitarian Mission. She is the lady who spearheaded the sewing machines project here on the island. We feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But that ocean of need might be less vast because of our involvement.
