A while back I was looking to revive the older ladies in the church to be involved in The Women's Ministry group that I am the president of. Seems it was hard for some of the them to make the night meetings. So we all prayed and prayed about what to do.
Well, little did I know that my prayers would be answered all the way from California while my mom was visiting my sister. Judi gave mom a crochet/knitting book on Prayer Shawls.
The ladies took to it immediately and to date have made over 20 shawls and prayed over and given around 8. They meet once a week on Mondays from 10 -12 and they catch up on goings on of the church and the activities of Womens Ministry.
My Mother in law is in charge of the group of 10 or so women. The shawls are given to all sorts of people. Some in our church, in nursing homes nearby as well as different people throughout the community. What a blessing.
