Hello Aloyo! I am from Texas in the United States and bought a beanie made by you. I am truly inspired by your story and pray that one day you can own land and support your children's education. As I read your story, I was reminded of Philippians 1:6, "And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ." You are so talented in being able to crochet. Thank you so much for the wonderful gift, Aloyo!

Thank you for making the beautiful scarf a friend gave me for Christmas. I am wearing it right now and I love it! It's so warm, and the color and design are lovely. I wish I could make as beautiful a scarf as you made. I like to knit, but can't make such beautiful things. Thank you so much for your wonderful work. I'll be sure to show my friends the scarf you made. Please keep knitting!
