Despite their lack of materials and having only one wedding dress to rent, Village Art was able to land their first bridal client this past weekend. A lack of gowns is not going to be a problem for much longer, as we have volunteers bringing over 40 gowns within the next month. On the other hand, we are still trying to raise funds on Know.Think.Act for the needed equipment to get the salon up and running properly, but that being said they were still able to assist this bride on her special day.

The ladies at Village Art had a great time preparing the bride and they got a glimpse of what is to come for Village Art and Bringing Hope to the Family. I believe the excitement was too much to keep some of the other ladies with Bringing Hope away. There seemed to be several extra hands in the room to help get the bride ready. The wedding was held at the local Full Gospel church in Kaihura and went off without a hitch.

We are very excited for Village Art and Bringing Hope to the Family. Part of our vision at GSM is to help our network affiliates with self sustaining projects. Lord willing, this was the first of many bridal clients to come.
