Running a craft shop is not my skill. In fact I find it a real struggle to find the time to manage it in the way I would like. I am so busy running the clinic.

We are totally dependent on sales to enable the women to be paid for the work they do. The women work; we pay them for their work and we hope to sell the products (see photo. The full catalogue is on our website at www.johnandpoppy.org.uk).

From time to time we hit a financial problem. This happened last week when it looked as though we would run out of cash by the end of the month. We stopped most of the women working but this causes hardship for those whose families depend upon this income.

We prayed about the situation and miraculously on Friday and Saturday we had two amazing days, with record income and large numbers of unexpected American visitors who bought many items. One of them says she will return to buy many more items to take back to USA. Please pray for the ongoing success of the shop. Poppy
