"Lord, lead me your way.  Here is my life.  I will follow you."  Spoken from her heart, Joyce Asaba has created this piece.  It measures 15.5" x 12"

 Joyce lives in Uganda, in the town of Hoima in the district of Bunyoro-Kitara.  Hoima is northwest of Kampala.  Living in a mud-brick house with a thatched roof, or a small brick house, Joyce's life revolves around caring for her family and her crops.  

She will use the funds she receives from her needlework to provide education for her children; medical support for herself and her family; seeds or fertilizer for her crops; repairs to her home, or even begin to build a new one; and provide for any orphans for whom she cares as a result of the war (Lord’s Resistance Army or LRA), HIV AIDS or other illnesses.  

Joyce is a member of the Bunyoro-Kitara Diocesan staff.  She meets weekly with her fellow needleworkers.  The community they have developed through Threads of Blessing encourages each of them and has significantly raised their self-esteem
