Amy Cornett has been a volunteer leader with the Refugee Sewing Society for most of its existence. In her other life, she's married to Bob, a mother of two, and Mamie to a pair of beautiful granddaughters. She also produces, writes, directs, shoots, and edits for such clients as Coca-Cola and Home Depot.
I took these photos before our Christmas party. The bead group makes beautiful jewelry each week. Here, they are working on a bracelet order for Georgia WMU. The WMU in our state is actively involved in preventing and ending human trafficking. Atlanta is a major hub for this illegal activity.
Khari (left) is fluent in English, though she is Bhutanese and lived most of her life in a refugee camp in Nepal. She helps Amy with translation. We're excited that not long after this photo was taken, she gave birth to her first baby!
The faces of the women in Amy's class are so beautiful. Chhali Maya's profile shows her regal bearing.
Kuresho, from Somalia, has been in Amy's bead group almost from the start.
Here are several of the other women in Amy's group.
Please remember Amy's bead students in your prayers.
