AFLC Alaska Mission
Quilts for Alaska
The Alaska Ministry Team so appreciates all the quilts being sent to their base in Alaska. The quilts are passed out to people in Naknek, as well as taken to many area villages where they fly. Several boxes have been taken to a closed village (due to strong Russian Orthodox influence) and were welcomed there solely because of quilts. Quilts were also sent to villages where there has been severe flooding and people had lost nearly everything – the quilts were received with tears. Additionally, dozens of quilts are shared with international visitors to Naknek during fishing season.
- Giving warm, hand-made quilts is a great way to give a practical expression of God’s love in the cold climate.
- People appreciate quilts.
- It opens doors to share the Gospel.
