Help send scarves to poor children around the world!
“Knit Together In Love” is a project dedicated to providing and sending warm, handmade scarves to underprivileged children around the world using them as an opportunity to share the gospel. (read the full story about how we got started here)
I’ve received stories back from different missionaries telling us what a blessing it was to be able to hand out the scarves in their women’s and children’s ministries. The scarves have been used as a tool to share the Gospel and they have even encouraged a new family to come to church for the first time.
Countries we have sent scarves to: Russia, France, Nepal, Romania, Burundi, New Zealand
This year I’d like to invite YOU to join the Knit Together in Love scarf project!
There are three ways you can help:
1.} As the Lord brings it to your mind would you please pray for the Lord’s blessing on this project and that the scarves would be used to warm the children physically and warm their hearts spiritually so they would be open to hearing the Gospel.
2.} Donate a new, handmade scarf or scarves! You can help keep a child warm with your donation. You can use whatever design you like but please make the scarves at least 21” long and at least 4” wide (bigger is better). I will be announcing the date we will begin receiving scarves for the 2013 project. To be sure you are kept in the loop either follow Knit Together in Love on Facebook or send me an email asking to be added to the KTIL email list.
3.} What if you don’t know how to make a scarf but you would still like to be involved in the project? There are various costs in a project like this such as supply costs and shipping fees to send the scarves. Would you be willing to donate a few dollars to help offset this cost? This is greatly appreciated. If you would like to give finically you can donate through the PayPal option below. It’s safe and you don’t have to sign up for an account.
Feedback from missionaries who received scarves from Knit Together in Love:
Most of the scarves were given out to children in the village of Trisuli. This is a very poor area and the pastor of a little church where we work tried to help the children in the area. They need to walk for a very long way to school, so during the worst of the winter months, he houses them at the church so they are closer. We do not sponsor the children there, but we have provided blankets and vitamins in the past. These kids have probably never had anything that was new and pretty. It is a wonderful blessing for them.
The scarves came and we have enjoyed the delights of the people as we give them away. The non-believers that we give them to, we are giving the gospel. Just yesterday a lady and her 2 daughters came to get some scarves for their large family of 7 children. We took the time to give them the gospel and the scarves. For the first time today this lady came to church. We are so thankful for all the work that you all did to make this gift possible. The package came right after Christmas. We were surprised at how large the package was. Thank you so much for the sacrifice of your time and money that went into this project.
