Join Hope Restored India at the Southwest Conference Against Trafficking.
The Southwest Conference Against Trafficking will be held January 11-13, 2018 at the Ontario Airport Hotel & Conference Center in Ontario, CA. The conference, since 2009, brings together hundreds of people wanting to end modern-day slavery in our society.
Law enforcement agencies, healthcare professionals, attorneys, social workers, nonprofit organizations, survivors, families of missing children, journalists, politicians, clergy, educators and anyone in the public wanting to learn more continue to gather in January to be educated, inspired and moved to take action against human trafficking and violence in our society.
Before anyone is trafficked, other issues may be a factor and the conference explores these issues. So, although the conference title reflects "trafficking" the conference weekend encompasses the past, present and future of Human Trafficking and what everyone can do to help prevent it and what we can do to fix it. In order to accomplish this speakers/presentations, networking receptions, meet the authors, media award presentation, survivor stories and people wanting to make a difference on this epidemic plaguing our society will come together in January in Southern California.

Quilt Auction

More information will be coming in February!

I am Laura's grandmother, like Laura I am always interested in what our country can do to help people that could benefit from our caring. I am also a quilter, some people quilt by hand others by machine— I ALWAYS QUILT BY HAND.

My grandmother was a quilter and although she lived far away and she is not with us anymore, I have kept in touch with her by quilting. Growing up I learned to save every scrap of material— not looking at anything as a throw away item but thinking that something beautiful could be made out of it; most quilters are like that.

This past January I had the opportunity to go to India and work with the women of Hope Restored India. Prior to going, my quilting group, Amazing Grace Quilters, took up a collection to purchase two sewing machines and an iron. While I was in India I was able to help Hope Restored India pick out the machines for the Community Development Center and set the room up for new quilters!

In the limited time that I was in India, the ladies who came to the Community Development Center learned how to thread a machine, some started to cut the fabric and learn the pattern to make a quilt. Making a quilt was different for them, it was amazing how interested they were and how willing they were to learn. They laughed and were amazed as each piece came together. They bursted with proud that they themselves learned to use the machines or put together a piece of the quilt. By the time I had to go we had completed the top of this beautiful quilt.

Remember I said that quilters save every bit of material. They look for the pieces that nobody thinks about and use it to create something beautiful. That is just like our lives and the lives of those who come to the CDC. The women come to the center are very broken (scarps of material). As they are being taught to sew with the broken pieces the women will see that in life they can take the broken and make something beautiful.

Since returning to the States, I have finished their work, hand quilting the quilt. The quilt is queen size with two pillow shams. Enclosed are photos of the quilt and the process of it being made. I supplied all the materials to make the quilt and I have given it to Hope Restored India to auction; ALL PROCEEDS will go to Hope Restored India. The starting bid is $300.00 and we will accept all bids until midnight Christmas Eve. I hope that you will be generous and bid accordingly, so if you are in need of a large tax deduction at the end of the year… this is your answer!

This quilt is not just a quilt. It teaches that broken lives can be made into something beautiful. While I was in India I shared with the ladies that by making this quilt it was going to be auctioned with the goal of generating funds for the ministry. The women were excited to be able to give back to the center by helping to make this quilt. And even more excited to see the broken pieces turn into something so beautiful.

“ Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day;
show him how to catch fish, and you feed him forever.”

“Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my
brothers or sisters, you did it to me.”
— Jesus —

Looking forward to your bid!
