Message from Päivi

Hi! We are Päivi and Birgit from Finland. Last summer (2014) we started to craft crochet dachshunds. A Friend of ours (a dachshund breeder) shared on Facebook our crachet dog images and soon after there were people, who wanted to buy the croched dachshunds Birgit had made! We decited to craft more dogs and endow GFA with gainings.

We want to support poor women in Asia and give them the opportunity to get a more independent life by literacy. You are welcome to do this with us by buying a crochet dog or donating!

We have named our "kennel" as "Koukun kenneli" Which means "Kennel Hook" in english. Koukun kenneli has a website! Have a look! ppeittola.wix.com/koukunkennel
It´s in finnish, but there are lots of photos of the crochet dogs we have made!

Birgit is "the maker" (She has done crochets for years) and Päivi covers the body of the dog with woolcoat for those who want to buy a long-haired crochet dachshund.

This is fun! :D We enjoy to do this! And this is a missionwork we can do! For the love of Jesus!

In addition we have another campaign: sewing machines www.mygfa.org/6dq and www.mygfa.org/6dw

About women's literacy

There are over 250 million women in South Asia who are illiterate. Because of this, Gospel for Asia-supported workers are training thousands of women every year to read.

Your donation will enable GFA to provide books, training materials, and classes for women in Asia. This will empower them to care for their families, avoid bad contracts that cause debt, and overcome abusive employers who take advantage of their ignorance. They’ll also get better prices at the marketplace—just because they can do math. Finally, churches will be strengthened as women are able to read the Bible for the first time.

About Gospel for Asia

TRANSFORMING COMMUNITIES IN ASIA

Since 1979, GFA has existed to fulfill one passion: seeing communities in Asia discover the same joy, hope and lasting peace we’ve found in Christ.

We serve to equip missionaries to minister throughout Asia. The projects funded through myGFA each play a significant part in helping missionaries serve more effectively and in transforming communities with the love of Christ.
