Sewing machines


These amazing sisters are strong, devout Methodist ladies who are proud of their faith.

in their local areas. Observing how the communities value and respect the contributions that women make to the church, the community, and their own families was astounding.
They require sewing machines in order to support themselves, their homes, and local churches.

This is the situation: they only have one machine that can accommodate 30 ladies, and they are unable to raise production.
If we can encourage the purchase of sewing machines and then display them in various areas including local churches, we can benefit our sisters there.
sewing device around $450.00

You Are Invited to Sponsor A Local Church In Bolivia

"With a small donation, we can transform the lives of our neighbors near and far. "Rev. Anita Lang 

Local churches in the Bolivian Evangelical Methodist Church are facing difficult times due to the pandemic, post-pandemic effects, inflation, and rural needs.

The newly appointed bishop, Rev. Medardo Vedia Gutierrez hopes that some of the churches in the WI Conference will sponsor a local church in Bolivia for one to two years. 

In Bolivia, Bishop Vedia listed nine local churches that are praying for a church in WI that might be ready to answer God's call. 

The goal is to build relationships, pray for each other, and learn and communicate with people from different cultures. Local churches in WI could assist local churches in Bolivia with minor projects like Instruments- guitar, bass, and drums for worship Mattresses, chairs, plates, a kitchen stove, chairs for the sanctuary, etc. 

One of the first churches to support a church in Bolivia was Elkhorn FUMC. The rural church in Bolivia is building a new church at the Zamora location thanks to the support of this congregation.
