For the single mothers in the slums of Quito, Ecuador, putting food on the table is never a certainty.
They call it the Atacucho area. Drug lords control the slums. Poverty and disease are daily companions. Mothers will do anything to feed their children, even if it means selling themselves. We take for granted the three meals we eat every day. Imagine not knowing if you could provide even one meal to feed your child tomorrow?

In an effort to provide for themselves and their children, some of the women of Atacucho have learned a craft - sewing. If they are lucky, perhaps a tourist will saunter by their table at market and purchase a handbag or scarf. Something to take home as a reminder of their holiday. For the tourist, it is a minor purchase. For these women? It can be the difference between food on the table or having to shake their heads "No" as hungry children look up with questioning eyes.

Practical solutions that expand opportunity while fulfilling the Law of Christ.
"
Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ." Galations 6:2


What if instead of relying on the uncertainties of the local markets, these women had a broader outlet in which to sell their beautiful wares?

Churchproducts.com, in collaboration with the mission organization SIFAT, is marketing these beautiful, handmade religious stoles under the "Stoles for Souls"TM program. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of these stoles go to the women of Quito and to SIFAT for their projects in Ecuador. The women are paid a market rate for their wares and excess proceeds are used by SIFAT to purchase more wares, expand the program to include additional women and to support other Ecuadorian relief projects. By giving these women a stable outlet to sell their products, you are giving them the chance to pull themselves out of poverty. You are giving them opportunity and HOPE.

Can you provide HOPE?
 When you purchase one of these beautiful stoles, you promote missions awareness at your church and provide HOPE to these women and their children. The quality of these stoles is comparable to those selling for twice the price and you will be reminded, every time you wear one of these beautiful stoles, of the mother and child in Ecuador you helped to feed. As word spreads and this program grows, we would like to add a traditional line of church paraments, stoles and banners to help expand this program and make a significant and lasting difference in the lives of these people. In the meantime, if you would like a custom quote for altar cloths or other paraments made by these women, please contact us.

Won't you provide the HOPE these women and their children so desperately need? We cannot do it without your support. Just as HOPE is after all, partners with FAITH and LOVE, these women need your partnership in bearing their burdens.

James 1:27  Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world

SIFAT is a missions facilitation and training organization located in Lineville, Alabama. Started by two Methodist missionaries in 1976, SIFAT is improving lives and spreading the gospel around the world. In addition to aiding the women of Quito, the money provided to SIFAT from the sale of these stoles provides aid to orphans in the same area.

The stoles in our "Stoles for Souls" program are made of traditional Ecuadorian fabrics in a beautiful array of vibrant colors.

Two styles are available:

LINED: Lined stoles are 6-1/2" wide and 59" long. A neck cutout ensures the stole lays flat on the wearer. A semi-rigid lining is used between the face and backing for uniform appearance and shape. Stoles are backed with a material similar to the lining of a suit for proper drape and durability. Cotton yarn fringe. A removable tassel is attached to the back of the neck.

UNLINED: Unlined stoles are approximately 6" wide x 58" long. Unlined stoles are less expensive than the lined stoles and feature a more "handcrafted" look. These are great for use at retreats or where travel is required as they fold up and store easily.

100% of the proceeds from the sale of these stoles go to the women of Quito, and to SIFAT for their projects in Ecuador. Churchproducts.com does not make or keep any money from your purchase.
