Sharon started a new Life’s skill project in August 2015 to support local school leavers and adults with learning disabilities, which will help them develop the necessary life skills that enable people to become independent valued members of their community and to live as independently as possible. She hopes the life skills programe will develop to the point where participants will have a small business selling homemade craft items so they can gain financial stability.
Sharron arrived back in the UK on 2 April. She says ‘In early April I had the chance to catch up with family and friends for the first time in three years, before beginning a tour of England visiting churches and speaking at conferences and various groups. In total, I gave 22 talks in all and it was such a joy for me to be able to meet some people for the first time and revisit churches that have been supporting me. The hospitality I received was amazing – a big “thank you” for your generous provision. I truly enjoyed meeting all of you and sharing some of my experiences as well as learning more about you.’
We had a very enjoyable visit from Sharon in June last year.
In October, Sharon returned to to Santo Domingo for another three years. She continues working with adults with learning disabilities, teaching life skills that enable them to become independent and valued members of the community. Read her latest mission news letter here. Wilcox 10
