PRAYER SHAWL MINISTRY

Today marks the 10th anniversary of our Prayer Shawl Ministry. How God answers one prayer, but blessed the lives of so many is amazing! To date we have given, that we know of, 860 shawls of various colors to people literally all over the world! To children (they get a toy with a matching shawl), graduates, brides, but especially those with breast cancer (pink shawls), those who have lost a spous...e, parent or child. To soldiers and to the families of fallen soldiers have gone red, white and blue shawls. One story I'd like to share... I just couldn't get one shawl mailed out. I was real busy at work, the post office was closed. I even said "God, I don't get it. Why can't I get this out?" Finally... came the thank you note from his wife. It arrived the day when he needed this shawl the most as he was in such pain. Receiving this shawl was just the answer... to put it on and feel the love and prayers. It gave him such faith knowing people that he didn't know were praying for him. So you see, everything is in His time! This is just one of the stories over the 10 years of how this ministry had touched lives.
In order to keep this ministry going, we need your help. It can be knitting, crocheting, or loomming... Looms are for those who do not do crafts but want to make shawls. Thanks to Thrivent we were able to purchase yarn recently, but any monetary donations would assist with mailings. Our team is small, but the requests for shawls keep growing. So if this is something you would be interested in, please contact me.

Blessings and hugs,
