Some of you already know about Elijah’s Hope Blanket Campaigns. For others, this is the very first time. Elijah was a little boy who died during a winter storm in brick maker prison because His mother had no covering to give to her little child except for her own body. One night her body heat was not enough and he perished in his mother’s arms.
UPON HEARING OF ELIJAH’S HOMEGOING, WE INSTANTLY SET THE ENTIRE FAMILY FREE!
Then Saima, Elijah’s mother, attended and graduated from the Teresa Sewing Center making clothes for prisoners.
On a few occasions, she went back to the prisons helping us pass out blankets to families and giving her personal testimony.
50 Blankets cost us $325.
This will touch and bless an ENTIRE PRISON!
But we don’t just pass out blankets. First, a gospel meeting proceeds the distribution with singing, testimonies, and the gospel.
(GRM pays the extra needed for P.A. SYSTEM… and sometimes meals for the entire prison).
But remarkably $325 begins to multiply!
As each family is an average of 6-8 members. So an average of 350-400 prisoners are reached with the gospel in which most will pray the sinner’s prayer. That is less than one dollar per soul.
Those who don’t receive Christ during this campaign will never forget our love. They come to Christ one by one.
DID YOU KNOW that a blanket is one of the three greatest possessions of a slave family apart from eternal life in Jesus?
A Blanket is number one,
a Bed is second and
an Insulated Water Jug is third.
But today our focus is a blanket to save lives and give us an opportunity to see OPPRESSED PRISONERS SET FREE IN THEIR HEARTS.
This is the time when the children come to the Lord by the hundreds.
HUNDREDS OF ORGANIZATIONS RAISE AWARENESS ON GIVING TUESDAY.
We would love to raise enough to hold 20 BLANKET campaigns lasting through the winter months.
For only $6,500 we can bless hundreds of prison families. Imagine reaching 20 entire smaller prisons. With more, we can do some larger prisons.
YOU CAN TOUCH AN ENTIRE PRISON WITH LESS THAN $500!
Or one Blanket for only $6.50 will save an entire family!
PLEASE HELP US TO TAKE AWAY SOME PAIN AND SUFFERING BY OFFERING GOD’S LOVE THIS CHRISTMAS SEASON TO FAMILIES.
