Blankets are sewn together by a very small group of mostly home school girls, ages 5 to 19. These blankets are used in the Crisis Pregnancy Centers throughout the state of Texas, and have been brought and distributed on missionary trips to Russia and Honduras. They have saved many lives with this ministry.
