A prayer for help is answered
Coinciding with the Year of the Family, Margaret Mkhize of St Michael’s mission in Ndonyane, has woven a wall hanging of the story of The Prodigal Son.
A parishioner of St Michael’s since her youth, Margaret trained there as a weaver until the training centre closed 15 years ago. Margaret continued to weave but had no outlet for her work. She tells how she went to the abandoned centre one day and knelt down to pray. She told God how she was struggling to support her family and begged for His help.
Help came in the form of Precious Blood sister Margaret von Ohr who visited Mrs Mkhize and asked to see her work. Sister Margaret is now seeking ways to sell the weaving works locally and overseas.
