Knit Pray Make A Difference

Today is Make a Difference Monday. You can do something as simple as share a story, knit a cap or blanket and pray. You can see some of the stories coming from CURE International out of Afghanistan. Learn more about what I will be doing there starting February 28th, click here.

Meet Ali Sina....

In September of 2011, Ali Sina was born with a cleft lip and palate as the youngest of six children to a poor family in Kabul, Afghanistan. Put simply, Ali needs help.

Ali's father, Mohammad, is a cab driver, and his mother stays at home to care for Ali and his five older siblings (3 boys + 3 girls). Life in Kabul is difficult for a poor family, and it became much more complicated when Ali was born.

In the 10 years since the ouster of the Taliban, great strides have been made for women in Afghanistan, with many attending school, working in offices and even sometimes marching in protests. But abuse and repression of women are still common, particularly in rural areas where women are still unlikely to set foot outside of the house without a burqa robe that covers them from head to toe.

Listening to you online in MD, while working this evening. Heard you mention about the Chris Brown mix-up earlier.

One song that comes to mind is, "If We Are The Body" by Casting Crowns. Would be really uplifting right now to hear that song. It may make some of those that are too quick to judge realize. It's been a while since I've heard that.

Peace & Blessings,

Been listening to comments re: "Chris Brown"  I had to get on the website to see which "Chris Brown" you keep talking about.  I discovered it was "Chris Brown of Bayside Church" (don't know where that is).  Might be helpful to include that last bit of info when you discuss someone that most people don't have a clue about who the individual is that you must know.  That isn't being judgmental when not enough info is given when you talk about an individual.  Even Jesus was known as "Jesus of Nazareth" and Paul was known as "Paul of Tarsus".  After looking at the website, I discover you are talking of "Chris Brown of Bayside Church".  Love the music - sleep with it on at night. Blessings.

I also need an address to send the beanies.  I would also like to know the last date that they can be received.  Will Scott keep sending the beanies once he is back in case we do not meet the deadline?

I'd like to get together in Rocklin, CA, with folks who would like to learn to loom knit beanies/hats, to send with Scott when he goes to Afghanistan. I plan to be in the area (I live in Susanville, CA) the week of February 7-9. I will provide knitting looms, yarn and instructions for this project. I need: a place, times & dates. In Christ, Sincerely, Lynn Markman
