32 Blankets and a Mess a Scarves!

You all did, strike that...

Y'all did great!!

Just look the beautiful collection of warm, colorful and very prayed over coverings Mary and I had the pleasure of wrapping for our West Virginia neighbors!

Take a look at all the love heading up to the Appalachians this week
For the record, this is 32 blankets and a mess of scarves pictured here!

The first installment of two lots of coverings and cold weather gear.

As a result of your efforts, fall and winter will a whole ;lot warmer for a few of our mountain neighbors. A special thanks to those of you who stepped up to make tie blankets, crocheted spreads, cotton quilts, knitted scarves and assorted donations of fleece and yarn; and of course so many of you who regularly pray for the recipients who will take comfort beneath them in the cold days ahead.

A mission team leaves Thursday and along with the Hands of Hope Ministry they will distribute these goods to the needy folks of McDowell County in conjunction with a planned men's conference later this week.
Thank you for being the hands and feet of Jesus to families right here in our own back yard. Without your help, this would not be possible.

For anyone who missed partaking in this blessing, the second load of blankets is still to be made. We need approximately 465 pieces of cold weather apparel. The wraps may range in size from a small baby size coverlet to full blown bed covers. We would also like to donate as many scarves and hats as possible.

Have I mentioned it gets cold up in those mountains?

Email us for a list of Flock Parties or let us know if you would like to host one yourself. A Supply List can be found here.

"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.' The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'There is no commandment greater than these." Mark 12:30-31

By His grace and for His glory,

tammy and mary
