“People are hungry for this teaching.” Penninah shared these words with us while a Loom team visited Uganda last week. While there, we gathered with some Celebrating Children Seminar Facilitators to hear how it is going, and what we can learn from as we prepare for a training in Uganda next Spring. Penninah, Jane Brenda,…
“What I love about Loom’s work is that they only support and promote projects that are started by local people. Together with them, Loom considers how they can provide meaningful and targeted support. This is done with great mutual appreciation.”
“The first event we attended we were impressed and blessed by Loom’s partnerships with the Local Experts and the amazing work that is being done…That same evening we were deeply blessed by how Loom honored each Local Expert in profoundly meaningful ways. Because of these friendships and incredible ministry we support Loom.”
“We partner with Loom because of your care for and devotion to local experts. We believe that enabling and empowering local experts is the best and only way to bring about lasting change.”
“I believe in the individual-ness of everybody — everyone has a unique story and I love hearing it. I’m also passionate about people’s relationship with Christ growing through relationships with others…[I partner with Loom because] building so many relationships with Local Experts was so impactful.”
“I partner with Loom because Loom has not only given me the tools and training I need for my calling but also shares my passion towards loving & caring for the weak and vulnerable in our world – women & children.”
“[Because of Loom] I have learned a lot about children but mostly I have found that God was teaching me about many things where I have to grow and make a step forward. Thank you so much staff. You made me come closer to God again.”
“[Through the training] my worldview about the child has been changed and equipped. I now can go to the community and serve better knowing the danger faced by all children out there at risk.”
”[I partner with Loom because through their trainings] I have learned more about my personality, my strengths, weaknesses… I am a better adult, caregiver, teacher, and servant of God.”
