This past week, I spent an afternoon with two amazing women. Sonia Thomas and Miriyam Matthew run a business called Threadpoets, and they asked me if I'd come over and shoot some of their items. It was one of the most memorable afternoons ever!
First, these women are wonderful. By the time I left, I felt as if I'd known them for ages, and was hoping to see them both again soon. There were lots of laughs, lots of great discussions, and some great coffee too!
But even better than the laughter and lunch was the knowledge that we were doing something important. You see, Threadpoets partners with "Good Night Red Light", and these beautiful items were made by women who were rescued from the Red Light district of Mumbai, India. To see such beautiful work, and then to know the story behind each stitch, is truly inspiring.
Spending time with Miriyam and Sonia, and helping to showcase this beautiful work was a wonderful blessing for me. It was an afternoon spent with Christian sisters, doing wonderful work for God's glory. What can be better than that?
