Christmas in China

A few
lovely pictures from Peggy, to share with everyone.
Please check out her blog for some great stories of what God did on their December trip to China!

Click here or you can always check in and see the link on the side of our page!

From Peggy's blog:
Heidi received one of the beautiful shawls made by the wonderful "KnitWits" in Texas.  With tears in her eyes, Heidi said she felt wrapped in love an prayer by these women from far away.  She is a Kingdom worker from Hong Kong and needed the support and encouragement expressed by the skillful hands of dear ladies.  Heidi loved knowing she will be continually prayed for!

What a privilege to pray for our sisters around the world!

Christmas 2010 in Durango

Pastor Mike, Rosy and Tom are home from Mexico! 
Here they are handing out some hats just off the plane! 

 A few of the children stopped to pose for pictures in their new hats and coats.
On this trip they handed out over 2000 hats and ALL of them had the gospel presented to them, too.

 Pastor Mike said that all the kids just loved the frog hat!
Do we have giraffes in our future? ;D

There is a return trip planned for January...details soon!

Rosy and Pastor Mike singing and praising with a group from one of the schools.

Please be praying for dear Floriana!
Some may remember her from 2 years ago, when she was flown into the city to have surgery to remove this large tumor.  They did get most of it and she recovered nicely.  

Well, they saw her again on this trip and the tumor is back.  

Pray God's will in this, that HE be seen to Floriana and her family in all that HE provides and does through this time.  

Let's be Flor's 2 or more!!! 

Matthew 18:20  
"For where two or three gather in my name, 
there am I with them.”

Durango - Prayers for Christmas

The last of the prayer shawls have been loaded

Let us all keep Pastor Mike, Rosy & Tom in our prayers!

They will be flying out on Monday the 6th for Mexico.  This flight will carry the last of their provisions and supplies for the Christmas outreach to kids this week.  They will spend the whole week with hundreds of children in several different villages.  
Many people have contributed Bibles, clothes, money for plane fuel and of course a few hats and shawls! :)
Please pray and ask your friends to pray specifically for this ministry, as they work this week.
  • Prepared hearts to hear and receive God's word.
  • Safe travel in the air and on the ground.
  • God's Peace to go before them for each person they meet.
  • Joy-filled time of ministry & celebration!
    Pastor Mike said today, "the greater the dark, the greater The Light!"  We join in thanks for God's great provision!!!
For we live by faith, not by sight.
II Cor. 5:7

KnitWits Knews of ArtWalk

KnitWits have been invited to participate in ArtWalk for November!

WOW!!! All over the country different forms of fiber (yarns) are being used for a plethora of fun things.  Our prayer shawl  ministry is one of these "new" things called fiber art. So, Jacque Hull, the owner of Jac-Lin's has invited us to come and share all about what we've been doing.  November is a month to truly celebrate Thanksgiving. 
We are soooo grateful for the opportunity to show our community just some of the things that God has been up to with the KnitWits!

  • There will be pictures of some of the people and places that we have sent shawls and hats off to.
  • We will also have different types of shawls and hats for people so see.
  • A donation jar will be available for people to help with gas $$ for Charity Rescue Mission's next flights into Mexico in November and December.
  • And of course, we'll have extra looms and yarn ready to teach anyone who wants to learn right there!

Invite your friends ~
bring your friends to a KnitWit Thanksgiving!!!


What a fun time this will be 
@ Jac-Lin's Florist/Art Gallery
Friday Nov. 5th, 6-10pm

Knew KnitWits :)

Perla's got it going round!
Getting started
What a lovely morning to sit and knit!

We are so thankful for the time we spent today teaching and making new friends!

GREAT job, JP!!!
We showed pictures from the scrap book and stories of what KnitWits are doing everywhere!  We were then blessed with questions of what they could do to help and how fast would they learn...they are so eager to get involved in God's work and be a part of it! :)

Round and round they go!!!

Mary and Perla starting the brim


 Everyone took to the looms quite easily and were able to finish their first baby hats.  
Please be praying for God's many blessings over this group.  We were blessed to be a part today!

Hats off for the summer!

Thanks to many for all your efforts!!!!

For it is God who works in you to will and to act according to HIS good purpose!
Philippians 2:13

Another delivery of hats and shawls was made and is ready to go off on the next trip down to Mexico. They are such a beautiful reflection of God's love and work through you all!!! 

It was like looking at a rainbow...God's promise of love to everyone!

Thanks from Pastor Mike and Rosy for all the prayers. There is great comfort and strength when you know that others are lifting you up in prayer.  We know that there are many dangers there, that are worse than previous years, and flooding has made travel there more difficult, too.  BUT, we also know our God is BIGGER!!!  :) So, keep those prayers going up and those purls going round....

We also had a GREAT time last week learning how to make socks on the small loom! 
It was easy to do, so if you're looking for something a little different, check out our new site for patterns.  

Would love to have you contribute your ideas there, too!!!
