Ruth’s Shawl started through the prayers of a group of women in Central California. Eventually those same women formed the original Board of Directors of Ruth’s Shawl. Now our current Board of Directors oversees the operations of Ruth’s Shawl and the work of our missionaries and supporting the team in Malawi, Africa. AS God leads and provides, Ruth’s Shawl, as ambassadors for Christ, will proclaim His Gospel, and demonstrate His love in various ways to the men, women and children of Malawi, Africa. Since 2007, Ruth’s Shawl has established programs such as adult literacy, prison Ministry, youth ministry, children ministry, Inductive Bible study training and other village outreaches.
