Juddah's Mustard Seed Baskets

These baskets made with a whole 'lotta' Ethiopian love, are specially hand-made by Juddah's mama right in her home in Korah! We are working together to get a micro business set up for her, with the hope of getting her moved out of Korah, and if we dream big, I mean really big, (moving forward with the faith of a mustard seed) praying that enough ongoing income would be generated so she and her family can move into a home that has running water, a flushing toilet and away from the disease that runs rampant in Korah. Just this week Berhanu took Mama, Grandma, Sarah and Mahalet into the clinic. Each one diagnosed with an infection, parasites, and fungus. If Juddah was there, he would be in the mix too, and without a doubt would have some sort of infection. {{Insert broken heart here}}
The baskets range in size from 8-11 inches in diameter, and all are about 2 inches high. These are very tightly woven, and made from all natural materials. A hammered metal tag adorns each one with the words, 'made in Korah' quite a conversation starter when friends see it, and ask you "what is Korah" and there the conversation can begin!


He replied, "Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mstard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move.
 Nothing will be impossible for you."
Matthew 17:20

YOWZERS! PRAISE GOD! HALLELUJAH! 
AND CAN I GET AN AMEN! INCREDIBLE! 

it has only been 12 hours and the first round of Juddah's mustard seed baskets are SOLD OUT! God is awesome. God is Big. God knows the plan! So encouraging to see the body of Christ work together as one. Thanks to all who reposted the link on the baskets thru facebook and their blogs. 

The next shipment of baskets are already made and are being transported to the US as I write this, so if you missed out, be patient more are on the way! 

Simply blessed by all of you you give so generously!

Oh wow! What a great idea! I would love to buy one... perhaps you could put me on a "waiting list"! They are beautiful & I would love to have one simply as a tangible everyday reminder to pray for Korah...

Hi,
my name is Tanya. I am the lady that you bought the backpack for Juddah from. I've been touched by what you told me and more by what I've read and seen here. It is overwhelming, incomprehensible, mind-boggling and powerful. I think you are a remarkable lady to answer the call of God to serve these people. Plus, I've discovered, that you are a fellow photographer! I can still see in my mind the very black eyes and happy smiles of adorable Juddah, so if you ever need a babysitter, my family and I would jump at the chance. Blessings to you!
Oh, and I'd love to buy a basket too if they become available. I could also share his story in our church and get many more people to buy them. My email is tanya.blessed@gmail.com, for some reason I couldn't email you from the blog.
