While speaking at Thursday morning’s Women’s Bible Study, Pastor Joel mentioned a goal of purchasing sewing machines for the women of Agongo, so they could sell products to support the school and its students. The ladies of St. Andrew’s were so touched by this that they spontaneously raised $2,115!
