Mission Servants (formerly Human Care)
Quilts: Ministry for Local, Regional, Global Missions
Serving God, serving others, and serving together has led a group of 15 women from Martin Luther Chapel, Pennsauken, New Jersey, to create quilted blankets for the last 40 years. Helen Gormley and two other women did the sewing while others cut and pieced. Many of the women are no longer here to help Helen, but she continues to makes the quilts in the basement of her home.
Helen recently suggested donating quilts to the victims of Hurricane Sandy on the Jersey shore and, as a result, 40 large quilts and 30 child quilts were delivered to a distribution center in Toms River, New Jersey. These quilts are an expression of love for neighbors and given to help those in need.
The women are also committed to bringing 25 quilts to the 2013 LWML convention in Pittsburgh. For the full story, click on Mission Servants in Action, then click on March - English- Quilts: Ministry for Local, Regional, Global Missions.
