Last year we had an amazing turn out for the Knit Together In Love scarf project! You helped collect over 1,100 scarves to send to many countries including Nepal, Israel, China, Romania and more!
Here are a few pictures from last year’s project!
The three pictures above show the scarves having been sent to Nepal with Sue Cook and the Allow the Children ministry. Here is what she said:
”We got one good photo of a child wearing a scarf that I thought you would like. We packed them into the Christmas bags and most of the kids did not take them out to wear while we were there. It was unseasonably warm in Nepal during our trip, but it is cold now—just as we had some warm days before the cold here…. All of the children in the Trisuli program received scarves. They are sitting on the roof top of the church in the sun, rather than inside the building. In the photo, we had not given out the Christmas bags yet. It is frightful cold in Trisuli —not on the day we were there, but on a usual day. It is far up in the mountains. The scarves will be a special blessing there.”
Some of the scarves we sent to Romania and used in women’s ministry there. My friend who took them said: “Note the darker-skinned gypsy ladies on the left-hand side of the picture…they were SO THRILLED with their scarves, and that we would bring gifts to them!!”
This is a picture of some ladies who are bringing the some of the scarves to a chinese orphanage called New Hope. They packed them up into gift bags to be distributed.
They also put the scarves into gift bags to pass out to make transitions smoother so they could minister effectivly on this short term trip. Jean says: ”Gift bags for guides, drivers that got us through ALL of the government bureaucracy–could not have done it without them!!!”
I really appreciated how they used the scarves on the China trip to share Jesus’ love with everyone. ”Hotel Housekeeper–so amazed that she was getting a gift!”
Above is a picture of me at Samaritan’s Purse bringing some of the scarves to be packed into the Operation Christmas Child boxes. The man who met me there was very nice and appreciative of the donation. He even let me take a look at the packing facility where the scarves were headed.
This year we will be doing the project again! Please send your donations to the address below by January 10 2015.
