 We have also given shawls right here and in and around Wallace.  30 Prayer Shawls  were given to Dayspring of Wallace residents in November.  We are very grateful for the generous donations to our ministry provided through our fellowship dinners sponsored by the Congregational Care Ministry Team.  Also, yarn donations and money donated have enabled us to provide these wonderful handmade items.  We are thankful for our ministry team and their interest in creating lovely prayer shawls for lovely people.  If you can knit or crochet and would like to join our Ministry Team, please contact Dottie Obenour or one of the members:  Mary Ayres, Cindy Barrow, Helen Brinkley, Mary Carone, Marilyn Frater, Susie Gaus, Laura Kinson, Carol Potter, Barbara Swetits, Sandy Ward, Vanessa Ward, Joan West.  Shirley Carlton and Joey Fussell head up the Happy Hearts Ministry.  The Happy Hearts are used by patients recovering from breast cancer surgery and heart surgery.
