How Alex & Chris Kuhlows, American missionaries started the Threads of Hope ministry out of small compassion?
Alex Kuhlow, founder of Threads of Hope, Inc., and his wife, Chris, have been missionaries in the Philippines. They started their journey in Puerto Galera, Mindoro.
They got to know Alona, one of the beach sellers, who made and sold bracelets on the beaches to the visitors. During one of their visit, they learned that Alona’s friend, who was also a vendor couldn’t sell enough bracelets to support her family so she ended up prostitution to help her family.
How does Threads of Hope save many Filipino children from prostitution and poverty?
Alex prayed to God for guidance on how to help. Alex saw that people’s need is to have a job. He decided to purchase $100 worth of bracelets from Alona. He belatedly understands that $100 is enough for Alona’s need for the entire month.
God blessed Alex act of kindness in a vast way. When Alex and Chris took those bracelets back to their fellow traveler, they were encouraged to retail them for earnings. Alex begot the whole amount from those sales back to Alona and said “Can you please make me $1000 worth of bracelets?”
Now Alona needs her friends and relatives to help her fill up the order. Each of them now had sufficient work. Through devotion and Lord’s direction, Alex and Chris pursue this routine. They would order bracelets from the dealers and sell them when they go back to the states.
