Power Band Witnessing Tool Bracelet
I want to share with you about the power band witnessing tool bracelet or called power bracelet. In 1994 when I worked as a camp counselor that year at Camp Ba-Yo-Ca. I got to learn to make these. Each week was a new set of boys. Each week for the month, we got to make these. This colorful bracelet with colors from the rainbow. Each color in this witnessing bracelet have a meaning. This bracelet is a good way to share with others about Christ. Maybe you can make a second one or more and give these out as you share the colors and their meanings.
What you will need:
- Leather Lace String (Long enough Wrap around your wrist a 1 1/2 times or so – gives room to tie the knots)
- Black Bead (1)
- Red Bead (1)
- White Bead (1)
- Blue Bead (1)
- Green Bead (1)
- Yellow Bead (1)
- Clear Bead (1)
How to put them together?
Take the leather lace string and make it long enough to fit your wrist with a little extra room. This extra room is for two knots and so you can put on and off the bracelet. You will make a first knot and then put the colors on in order as they are above, except the clear. While you put on each color read about what each color means. Once you have the yellow bead on and read about it. Tie the last night. Then you put the clear bead on and read about it. The clear bead makes the two ends a slip where you can put on and off the bracelet. Tie each end separately to the clear bead doesn’t fall off.
