Caring and Sharing

While so many of us love making things for ourselves and our families, many in the Lion community go further, creating for those in need. Join us in this section and be touched by these true stories of caring and sharing submitted by Lion Brand readers.

The Amen Group

Three weeks ago I made the suggestion of starting a prayer ministry at our church, after reading about it in your book. I immediately had 12 ladies wanting to take part. Today, Sunday March 5th we had 9 shawls, afghans and mufflers blessed. The ladies are so excited and when they finish one they want to know who is next on our list. We have an additional 10 in the making now. We have already received two requests from the community. One receiver said that when she puts her shawl on she can feel our arms around her. There is a scrapbook already started and funds coming in as well as more volunteers wanting to take part. We will be meeting monthly to start out just to fellowship and sew. We have added making shawls for those who are to baptized which are to be all white, in additon to those suggested in the book. Thank you so much for sharing the awesome idea. What a blessing.
