All Saints Lutheran Prayer Shawl Ministry

A year ago this month several women from All Saints Lutheran Church met with two women from Gloria Dia Lutheran and they shared with us the Prayer Shawl Ministry they had started at their church.

For us it was the beginning. In the year we've been in existance we have presented 11 shawls. Tomarrow night we will meet to bless five more that will be ready to give comfort to someone in need.

The response from the people who have received the shawls has been more than we could ever have imagined. Notes of thanks keep coming in.
We ladies who knit and crochet feel we have been blessed in so many ways and all the time doing something we enjoy.

We have used Lion Brand Homespun and love the softness and feeling of comfort it gives. Also many of our avid knitters have gotten into their stash to share with us.

We've given to people with many different needs. Terminally ill, homebound, someone grieving the loss of a loved one, alcholic, depression and many more. The shawl seems to fit the need of the person who receives it, God knows best were we should serve.

Thank you for caring about what we do and for helping us to share with others.
