shawl ministry

Hi, I belong to the shawl ministry. My friend is involved in this ministry also and she is the one who told me about it. She knits her shawls.

I crochet shawls and as I do, I pray over them. I pray before, during and after the shawl has been worked on. We have made five so far this year, and I prefer the homespun. I like it's texture.

As for how our gifts are recieved, the persons are usually very moved by them. I always get thank you's and cards and such from them.

Most of the time, I make them by hearsay. Somebody tells me that they know somebody who might need one or like one and I start making it. I can only hope it brings them comfort, for most of the time it's cancer patients that I make them for.

If you would like to know more about this ministry, you can go to and find out more about the ministry.

Have a blessed day!
