WILLS POINT, Texas -- A new three-month campaign aims to help some of the poorest families in Africa and Asia "sew their way out of poverty" -- one stitch at a time.

Texas-based mission GFA World's "Sewing Their Way Out of Poverty" campaign aims to provide 500 new sewing machines and vocational training for 500 desperately poor families struggling to survive day-to-day.

"Countless people trapped in grinding poverty literally live from hand to mouth," said GFA World founder K.P. Yohannan, also known as Metropolitan Yohan. "It breaks my heart each time I see an ocean of slum dwellings in major cities, or when I watch children digging in garbage heaps for food scraps."

Weingartz Family Foundation Awards 2 2 Million

ANN ARBOR, Mich -- International Samaritan (IntSam) President Mike Tenbusch announced today that the organization received a $2.2 million grant from the Weingartz Family Foundation to fund the expansion of its scholarship program in Africa.

The donation will fund new operations in Nairobi, Kenya, and Kampala, Uganda. As a result, 200 young people will receive scholarships over the next three years.

Over 15 million people live and work in communities surrounding garbage dumps, making a living by finding items to keep or sell to escape the extreme poverty that affects one in ten people globally, according to the World Health Organization. The average life expectancy in these communities is 35 due to rampant disease, injuries, and the lack of clean water.

He was a warm, extremely witty, engaging speaker

Professor Edward C Smith
Beloved Professor Edward C. Smith, from Washington Post Obituary April 9, 2023.

I was deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Professor Edward C. Smith of Washington, D.C. in March. He was a beloved friend of many in the Sons of Confederate Veterans and when he spoke at the SCV National Reunion in Lexington, Kentucky August 12, 1993, he was introduced with thunderous applause as "Professor Ed Smith, black Confederate."

He taught at American University for 45 years becoming the first tenured African-American professor at AU, and he co-founded American University's Civil War Institute.

At the 1993 Reunion, Professor Smith said that blacks fought enthusiastically for the South in the War Between the States for the same reason they fought for the Colonists in the Revolutionary War, which he called "the first Confederacy." It was about defending home and family, same as for whites. Remember, Crispus Attucks was the first man killed in the American Revolution and he was of African and Indian descent.

Transgender Activist Kills 6 at Christian School in Nashville

A woman who identifies as a transgender man murdered six people inside a Christian school in Nashville Monday morning before police killed her — an assault that a U.S. congressman attributed to potentially “some sort of demonic possession.” The United States “needs revival,” he said, before such targeted shootings become a heartbreaking new normal.

Around 10:13 a.m., a 28-year-old named Audrey Elizabeth Hale shot open a side door and opened fire inside Covenant School, a ministry of Covenant Presbyterian Church, which educates children from preschool through the sixth grade. Hale killed six people — three students and three employees — before two members of the police response stopped her 14 minutes later at 10:27 a.m.
