Kalesi benefitted from a BWA Women's Department grant to Lydia's Sewing Project, which teaches women to sew as a means to make income. She utilized the training she received to launch a sewing business, and, along with a friend, created the pictured conference bags for the Baptist Women's Union of Southwest Pacific Quinquennial Conference in Fiji in August.

A Prayer from Fiji

Loving God, provide a voice for our struggles.
Provide extra paddles to bring us together.
Grant peace to our hearts, our ears, and our eyes
to forgive and to love our neighbours and our enemies.
O Lord, give us a chance to redeem the Fonua*
and to reclaim paradise.

Rev. Valamotu Palu, Fiji )
