[Central Asia Savings Initiative Update]
Several weeks ago at a Vox gathering, we took a collection on behalf of one of our international partners to help jump start a women’s savings initiative. Because of your generosity, we are able to send over $2,000 to help bring empowerment to women in a heavily paternalistic culture. We want to thank all who were able to give generously to this cause, and ask that you continue to pray for safety and wisdom as this money finds its way to those who are in a more desperate situation than our own.
