ICC Develops Sewing Business for Believers in Indonesia

10/09/2018 Indonesia (International Christian Concern) – A cluster of families in Indonesia had been discipling others within their community for two years before local mosque leaders grew suspicious and visited their homes. One leader questioned why the families never visited the mosque. In spite of the growing suspicions, ICC sought to support this fruitful ministry.

It is often difficult for leaders of under­ground ministries to maintain a steady source of income due to the amount of time and attention they pour into their unpaid ministry roles. Your generosity enabled ICC to serve these families by helping the wives develop small sewing businesses. Most have three or four children, and they would like to financially support their families. ICC helped train these housewives in the art of sewing, so that they could develop a sustainable business that also allows for outreach opportunities.

This business will provide them with the financial freedom to preach the Gospel with­out worrying about how they will provide for their families. This sewing project will also allow these women to connect with other mothers in their neighborhood who do not yet know Christ.
