Make a Scarf for a WJEF Participant!
We're all getting tired of "unprecedented" these days, so we'd like to give a scarf to students attending the online WJEF conference this year to make it a little more personal and "homey." In past WJEFs, home-made blankets have been a meaningful symbol of support and prayers, and we hope scarves will continue this tradition even though we won't be together in person. Prayers are particularly important in this season, when many Native students are facing economic hardship and have lost relatives due to COVID-19.
What To Do
What To Do
- Purchase some fleece cloth somewhere (one with a Native print would be nice). A single piece of cloth would generally work for making several scarves that measure 8" wide by 60" long (or so).
- Make the scarves according to your level of skill and time! Here are a couple internet sites to get you started. The first requires no sewing.
- Please write a brief note with an encouraging Bible verse or prayer for each scarf you make. Some people pray for the student who will be receiving the item while they are making it, and include notes of what the Spirit brought to mind.
- Mail your notes and scarves to Nicholas Tifft, 8217 Logan Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55431 by Oct. 10 (Nicholas needs them all by Oct. 17 to get them out on time) so volunteers can assemble and mail our care packages to students who will be attending.
