Even in our 2013 Quilt Campaign this language can be found: Tied in Faith. Sent in Hope. Wrapped in Love.
It has never ceased to amaze me how we are all united under that one common mission of love.
Dedication to that mission can be found at every level of this ministry. It’s in the hearts and hands of those who assemble LWR Quilts and Kits. It’s in the devotion of staff and partners in our warehouses and overseas who ensure your gifts reach their destination safely and are given to those most in need. And it’s in the smiles and hearts of those who receive Quilts and Kits, knowing that someone cared enough to reach out to them.
As I make the very difficult transition to my next calling, I want to honor the commitment, dedication and love that are ever present in LWR’s Quilt & Kit Ministry. And I need your help.
As my parting legacy, I’d like to ensure that LWR has the funds it needs to send Quilts and Kits to people in need around the world, both now and long into the future. That’s why I’m asking you to make a gift to LWR’s Quilt & Kit Shipping Fund today.
It costs just $2.25 to ship an LWR Quilt overseas and all gifts make a difference. How awesome would it be to provide Quilts to 10, 50, 100 people?
Many of you quilt for LWR. Please accept my heartfelt thanks for the time, resources and prayers you put into every donation. If you’re not yet involved, this is an easy way to “get in on it.” You don’t need any extraordinary skills to change a life with an LWR Quilt — just a heart longing to answer God’s call to love and serve.
So next time you see an LWR quilter — hug them! Then give a gift honoring their work and become a part of this great ministry that touches lives and spans borders.
