One of the main-stay ministries in San Vicente is the 'Cottage-Industry Star Seamstresses', guided by Lori since 2008 (11 years now!).
Needless to say, the main-stay of the ministry is mostly Discipleship, learning solid work-habits and business 'behaviors'. Most of these women have only attended SOME schooling (usually up to the 6thor 8th grade), and ran only their houses and families.
Besides the countless days of 'sewing workshop' and 'product-making', there is much teaching that goes on, both individually and in a group.
When the women achieve a certain level of points, they get free stuff... all very desirable...
PLUS, Lori gives 'workshops' on things like keeping your sewing-machine in good, working order...
¡Dios es Bueno!
your bro, Chris
