It’s Official!!

Cross The World is moving!

The Cross The World wood shop and distribution center are on the move!  We’re relocating to Emily, MN the middle of July and have closed production until we get there and settled, which we hope will be mid-August.  Additionally, we are completely out of inventory and are unable to fill any requests at this time.  So, we’re asking that you wait with your requests until we’ve got the wood shop back in order.  Keep checking our website — we’ll let you know what’s going on!!!



In the last couple of months, we’ve gotten requests for our crosses that are going to be carried to northern Canada through the LAMP ministry.  We wanted to give those groups special recognition for carrying God’s love to these remote villages and the people who reside in them.  Hopefully, I’ve included everyone.  If I’ve missed someone, please know that it wasn’t intentional; let me know and I’ll mention you in the next post.  Your work is very important to all of us.

And, Cross The World will be SonShine Festival (July 16-19) in Willmar, MN again this summer!  Please plan to stop by our booth and visit if you come to the Festival.  For more information about SonShine, here’s their website:



Our Friend in Christ, Nyla G, is on her way to Guatemala and had requested some crosses to take along.  She was kind enough to share these photos of her grandson, busy at work, assembling the crosses:

And, here’s a photo of the crosses, packaged and ready to go:

Thanks, Nyla, for sharing.  We’re looking forward to hearing how the children reacted to these!

(Is it my imagination or do I see the sun’s shadow in the shape of a heart on the back of that patio chair???  God is an awesome painter, isn’t He?  And, His timing is always perfect!!!)
