Tangible Impact - The Blanket


Psalm 91

Hope Blankets serve as a dignity-giving gift that our Mission Partners provide as they build relationships and share Christ’s love. Its design offers words of comfort with the verse from Psalms 91, giving a message of protection, refuge, safety, love, and comfort. The Eagle, represents honor, respect, truth, strength, courage, wisdom, power and freedom and resonates as a meaningful symbol for many individuals we serve.

The HOPE Blanket has also been offered as an honored gift to our Native American community to Native American Chiefs and Tribal Leaders for special services, and to other leaders in our communities, veterans and active military persons, and ministries that help in the restoration of relationships.

"He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty...

He will cover you with His feathers and under his wings you will find refuge. His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart."
