Darla making jewelry with the widows
The widows in India are treated very unfairly. When you become a widow, regardless of your age, you must never marry again. Your considered unclean. It is difficult to get a job to support your children, and unless your husbands family takes care of you, the widow can become destitute. We send montly support to help with their basic needs. It is hardly enough. Many resort to begging, some may have to prostitute, and many times they will have to give up their children. We spent the day encouraging them, showing them the love of Jesus, and taught them how to make jewelry. We are leaving many jewelery tools and supplies so that they can either make to sell, or just to feel pretty.
