A Comfort Blanket is a handmade blanket we like to give to children who have a need emotionally and physically. The kids LOVE these and call them "covers"! We also like to give special needs children these blankets as well as children going through some tough emotional situations.
The blankets are handmade and prayed over. When we give them to a child, we are giving them something covered in prayers, we hope and pray if finds them comfort in the situation they may be in. It is also something that they can call their own.
There are many ways to make a no-sew fleece blanket. We have tried to gather some resources below for those who may want to learn!
In general you will need the following to make a tie blanket:
Last year, just a couple of weeks before we left we began a blanket drive. We thought the blankets were only for our bags for special needs children when we started. But, God provided 100s of blankets and we packed them, thinking He must be up to something.
Over and over all week, the Holy Spirit moved in the hearts of missionaries to give blankets to kids of all ages. We listened to stories of fear, abuse, and health concerns. Or we saw the need for a little extra comfort or a reminder they are loved. The blankets became a tangible reminder that God never leaves, that He sees, the He hears, that He is there, and we love these kids.
Will you pray for the missionaries to be sensitive to the nudges of the Holy Spirit as they interact with the children? Will you pray for the children who need comfort?
