Comfort Givers Headline
I was going through some of the notes from past years. According to the records of the Women of the Church, Comfort Givers started in 1982. Comfort Givers from 1982 thru 2020 have sown 3,799 comforters/quilts to have Lutheran World Relief send them overseas. Lutheran World Relief reaches out to: Angola, Bahamas, Chile, Djibouti, Ecuador, El Salvador, Georgia, Guinea, Haiti, Honduras, India, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Mali, Montenegro, Rwanda, Senegal, Serbia, South Sudan, Tanzania, Ukraine, Zambia. The Comfort Givers did more than just make quilts. From 1982 thru 2020 we have sent 1,580 purchased blankets, 1,707 school kits, 1,279 personal health kits, 1,384 pounds of soap, 108 layettes, 2,243 clothing/sweaters, 26 pounds of material, 192 baby blankets and 213 sewing kits. The many different ladies over the years have done a lot of our Lord’s work.
We are still making quilts and sending kits. We are collecting for baby kits which we are sending this year with the quilts and blankets. As they said in their report in 1991, “We would be happy to have more ladies to join us. No need to sew a fine stitch. All you need to do is cut patches and knot yarn. We’d be very happy to see you.” We want you to join us today. We meet the 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month from 10AM to 12 PM with a coffee break in the middle. Come help us help people, both overseas and local.
Dear Lord, we thank you for all you have given us, our life, our family, everything we have. We ask that you give us guidance to serve your people in our community and all over the world. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
