Oh these beautiful faces... these are my soras, my sisters, in Romania.
My first trip to Romania in 2014, I instantly felt family, felt love, felt home. In 2015, I returned to serve and do life with the gypsies of several small villages. It was then that God gave me the scripture 2 Corinthians 2:14 "But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere."
I knew that I had been given a talent and a gift that needed to be shared. I felt a strong calling that I was supposed to start a Fair Trade business with these ladies.
In June of 2016, I returned to Romania prepared to buy goods that they had hand crafted. I prayed that if it was God's will that I would be able to teach them the GraceFull Goods art of hand crafting crosses and turning them into jewelry. I couldn't believe the overwhelming response by the communities and the interest they had. Beautiful crosses were made and a new relationship was formed. In our catalog, you will find "The Gypsy Necklace Of Peace" with each cross lovingly made by these precious people.
My soras are now making crosses and jewels for GraceFull Goods. Proud doesn't begin to describe my feelings.
