Sewing, weaving and candle-making are most often seen as hobbies enjoyed here in the West. But for many women in Asia, these "hobbies" can be a genuine source of income. These skills provide income to help feed families. Vocational education also offers women a sense of dignity because of the opportunities it provides for them to earn an income.
This month we a have chance to pray for GFA-supported vocational training. Vocational training is empowering many women in Asia, teaching them skills that can lead to practical financial stability. As we pray for the different aspects of this ministry, let us remember the Lord hears us and knows each woman who is impacted now and will be through the coming years.
