We recently received a letter in the mail from a lady named Allison from Porter, TX who wrote to tell how her husband has been going to MD Anderson in Houston to receive chemotherapy treatments for pancreatic cancer. While it has since spread to his liver, she praised God that he has been able to tolerate the chemo up until now. They are praying for a miracle but struggling with his life expectancy (as indicated by the doctors) of about 6 months to a year.
Allison then went on to say that on Feb 7th her husband, Mark, was at MD Anderson for treatment and met someone from our church who prayed with them and gave them one of our prayer squares. Their hearts were warmed at this kindness and she wanted us to know what a marvelous ministry this is and how they treasured this act of kindness.
God is everywhere and is always in the details of our lives. Even in the seemingly small weaving of a square of yarn that can be shared as an expression of His love. On Feb 7th a 3 inch piece of yarn was the mechanism God used to pour His love on Mark and Allison. And none of this would have happened without the love and prayers of some ladies at our church who decided to create these squares and pray diligently over each one as a way to deliver God's peace and love to people in need.
Thank you to Norma Wallis and the dedicated team of volunteers who help continue this ministry to serve God's people through prayer...and yarn!
