Once in Africa they meet Jaleela through Mama Penny. Jaleela has a dream, one she believes that God placed on her heart. She wants to be able to support her family even while being infected with AIDS. It is a disease that is devastating the continent of Africa. No one wants to talk about it, but it is leaving millions of orphans every year. Jaleela just want to take care of her children as best as she can. Her hope is that the ladies will be able to sell their bead works in America. Will the ladies be able to help them? Do any of them really want to?
This is a good book to read. I know Cathy wrote this book to generate interest in Beaded Hope, but I think it will also generate interest in missions in general. I know it made me think of the mission trips I have been on. Whether on a foreign field or in the USA, it doesn’t matter they have all been very special and it’s so much fun to remember them.
