GOD'S SAFEKEEPING BIBLE VERSE -
"The mountains may depart and the hills be removed, but my steadfast love shall not depart from you, and my covenant of peace shall not be removed, says the LORD, who has compassion on you" (Isaiah 54:10).
Westminister Guild's Fall Regional Gathering was held at the Community Presbyterian Church in Manitowish Waters, WI on Thursday, September 19, 2019. About 30 women enjoyed the Comforter Ministry presentation. Thank you ladies for your interest in CM. Your questions and comments were much appreciated! Thank you for the lovely lunch, as well.
St. Peter's WinGS (Women in God's Service)has invited me to facilitate a Comforter Ministry Prayer Gathering in Schofield, WI on Thursday, November 14, 2019 at 1:00 PM. I presented the CM PowerPointPresentation last November and the women suggested I come back the following year and share a CMPG with the women of St. Peter. Thank you, Ladies!
DO YOU have a top made that you would love to donate to CM, but it needs to be long armed?
Heidi Bork has offered to long arm up to two (2) quilts per month on a first come, first served basis. As the top maker, you would be responsible for making the top, providing a back that is 4" larger than the top in all directions and shipping to Heidi in Neenah, WI. She will provide the batting, long arm quilting, and return shipping to you. If interested contact her at: Quilterazzi@gmail.com or call 920.205.7213.
I understand there have been several quilters that have taken Heidi up on her offer - WONDERFUL! Thank you, Heidi!
A COMFORTER MINISTRY WOMAN WITH A PRAYING HEART -
If you are a woman with a praying heart, I am asking you to set aside a few minutes each day or some regular time of your choosing in order to pray for Comforter Ministry Recipients, CM women who have been diagnosed with cancer.
The CM Prayer List and Prayer are found right here on this page. Simply continue scrolling down and you will find a list of names for 2018 and 2019. There are many more names but I have chosen to share names from just the past year and current year. You are encouraged to pray not only for the specific names listed here but also in a more general reference as simply "CM Recipients" and "all those who have been diagnosed with cancer."
Please prayerfully consider being a Comforter Ministry Woman with a Praying Heart.
IF YOU AND/OR OTHERS YOU MAY KNOW WOULD BE INTERESTED IN FORMING OR ARE ALREADY PARTICIPATING IN A PRAYER GROUP, WOULD YOU PLEASE CONSIDER INCLUDING CM IN YOUR PRAYERS? CM PRAYERS ARE ALREADY WRITTEN (4 of them) AND CAN BE FOUND ON THE CM WEB SITE, www.comforterministry.com, UNDER "MORE" AND CLICK "PRAYER GATHERING" OR USE THE PRAYER BELOW UNDER THE PRAYER LIST FOUND RIGHT HERE ON THIS PAGE :)
**COMFORTER MINISTRY PRESENTATION OPPORTUNITIES**
Once again in 2019, I would appreciate the opportunity to share my recently produced Comforter Ministry Power Point Presentation with you. The presentation could also include a Comforter Ministry Prayer Gathering/Prayer Bible Study. I would also encourage invitations to various events in order to share the Comforter Ministry Display.
These opportunities might include ministry/mission themed events within our WELS, women's retreats, women's groups, quilting workshops, college campus groups, high schools, Lutheran Pioneers (LGP), upper grades of Christian Day School and Sunday School, home schoolers, etc.
You are encouraged to contact me and we can determine if date, time, and place can be arranged. My hope and prayer? To search for ways to get the word out about the Comforter Ministry and the blessing it offers women of all ages. To date, 1 years old has been the youngest CM recipient diagnosed with cancer.

Words to Share...
Dear Su, What a beautiful quilted comforter! I was so surprised when my husband opened the box and lifted out the quilt. Thank you for remembering me this way. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in May and was told it was an aggressive kind. Currently I am under hospice care at home. I have regained strength after being hospitalized. So I now can do many of my regular household activities. Friends of the community and congregation have given me much support and promises of prayer. I appreciate what you and the quilters are doing for cancer patients like me. God be with you as I know God is with me, Iris T.
Thank you Iris!
Thank you St. Paul Quilters-Algoma, WI!

Holy Comforter, Bring peace of heart and mind to these women. Their earthly tribulations are at a high point during these most difficult days. They need Your presence and peace to comfort and sustain them. Through Your Word You promise to strengthen and comfort all who believe in Jesus as their Savior. Through Your grace may they experience your holy comfort and, if it be Your will, grant them complete healing. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.
