We have a wonderful group of women in our church who have a ministry called, “Hands of Hope”. Starting over three years ago, these women have used their gifts of knitting, crocheting and quilting to bless others. They have made hundreds of hats, scarves and gloves for little ones in elementary schools, who could not afford them, prayer shawls for women who need comforted, and lap quilts to keep the elderly warm in their wheel chairs.
They have been so faithful to use their talents to glorify the Lord and have given them all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ to wherever He leads them.
I just wanted to show you a few of the women in Hands of Hope meeting in our Fellowship House. They have become so close over the years through some of the trials each one has gone through.
Joann, the director of the ministry, had a vision for this group before it started. We set a time and place for them to meet and sent a newsletter out inviting over 200 women in the community to come. We were amazed at how many came that first year.
Women came with their yarn and needles and just started working and talking. It was such a confirmation that the Lord had led these women to be in this ministry. They pray together and talk about the Lord as they work on their projects. They are indeed examples of things the Proverbs 31 woman accomplished.
