Lambano is the root word for the Greek Katalambano, which means “to take hold of.” Paul wrote: “I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me” (Philippians 3:12 NIV). The Lambano necklace was designed and crafted by the artisans of ViBella, a company that strives to provide jobs and dignity to impoverished women in Mexico, Haiti, India, and Ecuador (see www.vibellajewelry.com). When you wear the Lambano necklace, you’ll be reminded to Take Hold of everything that Jesus has taken hold of for you and placed in you!
