Giving Warm Blankets in Jesus' Name


Nobody likes being cold. When chilly temperatures arrive, we pull out warm sweaters, thick socks and piles of blankets. Families in Asia are equally eager to stay warm during cold weather, especially because millions of them live in drafty huts or even on the streets. But the families in these conditions live hand to mouth, trying to meet their needs for today. How can they save money to buy necessities like blankets? Many simply can't.

Whether people live on the streets or on a mountainside, winter threatens the lives of those caught unprepared. Cold weather is especially dangerous for children and the elderly, but it can cause illness or death in anyone who is exposed to the elements for too long.

GFA-supported workers distribute thick, quality blankets to families in dire need of protection. Giving a warm blanket in Jesus' name to someone whose life is in jeopardy communicates a message of love, honor and hope.

"It was my heart's desire to have my own blanket. I was not able to buy one blanket for myself. I thank God for giving me the blanket. … Because of this distribution program, I took part in God's blessing." —Hamesha, a woman who received a warm blanket

In 2019, GFA workers distributed 300,000 blankets to families in need.
