Morning: Building Confidence In Others
(South Asia) Ergon means “energy” or “power.” The Ergon handicrafts company, based in South Asia, seeks to empower women with job skills, income and confidence through employment in fair trade. Ladies create products such as stationery, boxed note cards and cloth-covered journals from locally made recycled cotton papers. Ergon’s supplies are purchased from craftsmen whose families have been making recycled cotton paper for more than 400 years. Gifts through the Cooperative Program enable Southern Baptist representatives such as DEREK and LEAH O’LEARY* to work alongside local women such as Mary*, who lives in a slum with her husband and son. A believer, Mary serves, counsels and loves the other women in her slum. *Names changed.

Morning: Share God's Love
(Louisiana) RANDALL and TANYA GILL began Community Impact of Bayou Association as a means to help the residents of Terrbonne and Lafourche Parish in Louisiana. They partner with churches and other ministries to offer relief through school projects, mobile food pantries, disaster relief and multi-housing ministries. By leading Bible studies, hosting volunteer groups and distributing Bibles, their goal is to share God’s love with people as they help meet physical needs. The Gills are thankful for your support through the Cooperative Program and ask that you pray for the many Homua Indians, Frenchspeaking people and African- American families they minister to each day.
