SPRING COLLECTION INTRODUCTION
This gleaming collaboration is inspired, by the Kenyan teen moms we serve, who affectionately refer to glitter as “shine shine.” In order to shine, one must reflect light. While the darkness of the world grows, so does the opportunity for us to shine. As we burn brighter and illuminate the darkness, we are connected by each bright and light piece of our "Shine, Shine" Collection created by hand by global artisans. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. John 1:5
When Kristen Welch, MHG Founder, visited her friend Sancha for chai tea, Sancha commented on the polymer earrings Kristen was wearing. Kristen and her daughters had been experimenting with clay. She took off an earring and placed it into Sancha’s hand. Sancha turned it over in her palm, studying it closely, and said, “I would like to learn to make these.” Her curiosity, eye for detail and determination helped Sancha quickly surpass her teacher, and today, she is a skilled polymer artist.
Sancha is from the war-torn country of Bhutan, and her family was sent to a refugee camp in Nepal about 20 years ago for refuge. She came to the United States with her husband from the refugee camp in 2012 and lives in a refugee community in Houston. In 2014 Mercy House Global began providing work for refugees in Houston and developed a one-on-one relationship with Sancha. She uses the money she earns to provide for her family. Her dream is to own a home one day. Recently, Sancha took the steps to become a US citizen.
