Whether you wear the shoes of poverty or the shoes of prosperity, there is always the opportunity to count your blessings. Red Bird Mission has been providing ministries in the Kentucky region of the Appalachian Mountains since 1921. Pitman United Methodist Church plans to help Red Bird Mission share some blessings with the residents of this isolated, rural distressed area by sponsoring their craft fair.  Red Bird Mission will bring locally-made crafts to Pitman. Their crafters are gifted artisans in woodworking, weaving, basket-making, toy making and corn shuck flower making to name a few. To see samples of their work, visit www.crafts.rbmission.org. Your purchases will help offset the chronic poverty, lack of jobs, poor housing and rugged mountainous terrain which provide obstacles to a fuller life for the residents of this area.
