We are grateful to the giving initiative for the opportunity to participate in #GivingTuesdayNow. Any funds raised will be used to support our mission of making memory quilts for grieving families, providing a sewing “home” for our community of volunteers (our Stitch’n Sisters) and providing for the physical and spiritual needs of the children who attend the Bible Clubs in the Kibera Slum, Nairobi, Kenya. As COVID 19 spreads through the world, we expect that social distancing and the impact of COVID in the Kibera slum will provide unique challenges and expenses that will require Living Threads to put additional protocols in place to protect their workers and meet the unique needs of the Kibera Slum. Your donation and partnership with Living Threads to continue God’s Kingdom work is deeply appreciated. If you have questions about the GivingInitiative, please visit their FAQ page.

A Message from Jill's Heart

Dear Friends of Living Threads,

We are in the midst of a time like nothing we have experienced in our generation but it’s no surprise to God.  He IS still in control and we are still called to be salt and light to the world. With that in mind we don’t want to panic or operate out of fear but honor the wisdom of those making recommendations for the health and safety of all.  As you are aware the news updates come rapidly and the CV pandemic is constantly in flux, and new information is continually shared by the media, sometimes changing by the hour. 

I wanted to communicate that you will be receiving our 1st quarter Newsletter in the mail any day.  In these unsettled times I did not want this to come across as insensitive or forward.  Our Newsletter was already crafted, folded, stuffed, and stamped ready for mailing prior to the new CV-19 updates.  Due to the governor mandates we have asked our volunteer quilters to remain home as we evaluate the situation week by week.  Many of our volunteers are retired and their health is a priority in our decision making process.  Our office is open with adjusted hours to tend to the needs of the ministry. 

We look forward to 2020, celebrating our 10th Anniversary in ministry.  We give God all the glory for the wonderful ministry of Living Threads and how HE has provided through YOU to serve HIS Kingdom purposes.  It’s with a heart of gratitude and thanksgiving that I leave you with this blessing from Numbers 6:24-26, “May the Lord bless you and protect you.  May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you.  May the Lord show you his favor and give you His peace.” 

We are in His grip,

Jill Dannenberg, Executive Director

Volunteer Spotlight: Making a Memory Quilt for Mom

Walk with me down the halls of Living Threads, listen to the murmur of the voices of the women sewing in the Mary and Martha rooms. We won’t be able to hear what they are saying, but our hearts will hear the friendliness in their voices. We’ll hear these ladies are not just sewers—they’re “family”, lifting each other up in both joys and sorrows. Let’s go inside and meet Kathy Kempema, a volunteer sewer who’s going to share part of her story with us. . . Read more . . .
