GIRLS' CAMP--LEARNING SUPRISE
traditional art in this Roma village in the Republic of Moldova, but no one thought the current generation of girls would be at all interested in learning it. Nina, a woman who sells some of her crocheted creations, had tried to interest some of them. She reported no success. Yet she was willing to try again at a day camp for teenaged and pre-teen girls in her local Baptist church. The day camp focuses on introducing the girls to Jesus and God's profound love for them as well as empowering them personally. To everyone's surprise, several girls eagerly volunteered to learn. No one was prouder then they were when they successfully completed the decorative flowers Nina taught them to crochet. Unless, of course, it was Nina herself.
