Yarn for Kenya


 

Sounds strange doesn’t it?  But then, we are not there.  We do not always know the need.  Until now.  On June 8 of this year MeadowBrook will send a team to Kenya.  We will minister to the inhabitants of a refugee camp.  Tribal fighting has forced them from their homes in Uganda and Kenya.  One of their biggest needs is warm clothing for the winter, which is right upon them.  We will be there in the beginning of their winter.  The best way to clothe them is to teach them to make their own.  Heart of the Bride is engaged in a ministry that teaches them to knit blankets, sweaters, and other clothing items.  What they need is yarn and knitting needles, specifically in the colors of pink and green.  Would you pick up some yarn and a pair of knitting needles to send with us?

 

If you are a MeadowBrook member you can place them in the glass box in the atrium.  If you are not a member of MeadowBrook you can send your yarn to the address below.

 

Remember, we need pink and green.

 

If yarn is not your thing, we also need bibles in Swahili.  They are $10 each.  If you would like to contribute to this fund please label your check “Bibles for Kenya” and place it in the offering plate on Sunday or get it to the church office at:

 2525 Rainbow Drive, Gadsden, Al 35906

    That is SO funny! (I know it’s not s’posed to be 🙂

    I first read that headline as “YEARN for Kenya”, which is terribly spiritual if you think about it… 😉

    Sending pink/green and knitting needles!
