Sharing the Love of Christ with Refugee Women

January 8, 2023

Kitty teaches refugee women handicraft skillsKitty is sharing the love of Christ with refugee women in Greece by teaching them handicraft skills and entrepreneurship—priceless gifts for women who have rarely had a sense of dignity and value. Most of the women Kitty teaches were forced to flee their homelands in the Middle East and other unstable regions. They came from Islamic cultures which limit or prevent women from engaging in business or moving around independently. In Athens, people are able to sell handmade items without an official license. By teaching these women how to run a business, Kitty offers them an opportunity to develop a sense of autonomy while creating space to talk, build community, and hear about Jesus.

After months of hosting her classes in different locations, Kitty wanted something more permanent. God provided such a place in downtown Athens. In exchange for helping a local ministry partner manage the space, Kitty is able to use it for her classes free of charge. Since starting her latest five-month long class in September, Kitty has seen the religiously diverse group speak openly about their joys and their struggles. One woman shared about a friend who was shot during the unrest in her home country. Two other women often start conversations about Jesus, which create opportunities for them and Kitty to share more about their faith and hope in Christ.

God has brought Kitty to this new space so she can better demonstrate Jesus's love and speak His truth into the lives of women who might not otherwise hear about Him.
