Just Because Ministries provides comfort/holding crosses that are hand carved from olive wood in Bethlehem Israel to people who are currently battling cancer (chemo and/or radiation treatments, cancer surgery, hospice care, etc.). The crosses are made to be held and help bring peace, encouragement, comfort and strength to those who are fighting cancer. A simple reminder of the promise of God that He will never leave us or forsake us. No matter what the situation or where we are, He is always with us. Holding or rubbing the cross lets their hands feel what their heart already knows...that God is there, He cares, He loves them and they are never alone. Many take the cross with them to their chemo and/or radiation treatments.
Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. - Isaiah 41:10
The crosses are free and shipping is free.
