Your love of Embroidery, Cross Stitch, and/or Needlepoint can be used to share God’s love to those in developing countries and help provide an opportunity to break the bondage of poverty.

Poverty is more than a money problem! It also steals the opportunity for people to be creative – lowering their sense of self-worth.

A basic needlecraft workshop gives participants a new experience and skill which they can use to improve their living standards.

The long-term goal of this workshop is to help students learn how a craft can be turned into a self-sustaining “cottage industry.”

LEAMIS will help you with your workshop agenda, needlecraft ideas, and marketing possibilities.

While you are in Kenya, you may want to extend your trip a couple of days and take advantage of their many safari opportunities.

Through such projects, LEAMIS promotes transformational development by empowering local pastors and believers with the tools and resources they need to impact their communities for Christ. The goal is to multiply the impact by empowering local persons to share what they know with others rather than depending on outside help.

Transformation addresses the spiritual need of recovering our true identity as humans created in the image of God and restoring relationships with God, ourselves, our community and the environment.

Development speaks to discovering our true vocation as productive stewards, faithfully caring for the world and all the people in it. As such, we seek to assist others in developing self-sustaining means to achieve this.
