Covering the world with warmth & love

Youth from Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, Ashland, Pa., participate in “Blanket the world with Jesus’ love,” as part of a Fiesta vacation Bible school program. The kids knotted blankets, decorated and signed felt hearts, and prayed over the blankets.

For the Bible school closing program during Good Shepherd’s Sunday service, the children brought forth the blankets and placed them on the altar while the congregation sang “Blest Be the Tie That Binds.”

The blankets, along with a book of Bible lessons learned during Fiesta, were mailed to the International Bible Society to be sent to Ecuador, Bolivia or Guatemala.
