Local Church Women to Provide Quilts for Cristo Rey, El Paso
Holding a toy wrapped in a piece of mylar (the cover provided migrants in border detention centers), Pastor Rose Mary Sánchez-Guzmán described her sorrow that a child experienced such cold in the center that she wrapped her toy in its own blanket to keep it warm.
That story touched the hearts of the people gathered at church on Saturday evening a few weeks ago when the pastor and her family visited with us to share some of her experiences ministering to migrants along the border.
After checking with Pastor Rose Mary, the women of the Lutheran World Relief quilt project agreed to make and send quilts to the El Paso ELCA church for use in its ministry.
Consider donating fabric or money to purchase material for the quilts. Are you also a quilter? Perhaps you could make some child-sized quilts. Check with Dorothy Nail, Ellen Zagajeski, or Karin Gustafson about specific needs.
