Lap Quilts for Veterans

Peace and St. John's Women's Ministries Team Up to Live the Love!
God gives us comfort in many ways.  One of His Ministries is the LCC Comfort Dog Ministry.  These Golden Retrievers go anywhere they are invited!  They offer comfort and peace to people who are hurting or need healing, or just need a furry hug to help them get through a difficult time.  As St. John's Comfort Dog, Eve, and her team visited local senior care facilities they met veterans who had given their service to this country and were now at a time in their lives when they were in need of care and comfort.  That's when a group of women from Peace Lutheran and St. John's decided to make lap quilts in patriotic colors to give to veterans.  We hope the quilts are a reminder that God loves them and is always there with them and that we appreciate the sacrifice they made for our freedom.
It was exciting to give two of these quilts away last month.  We regularly visit Beacon Hill, Lexington, Lombard Place, and Park Place.  We would love the opportunity to give more lap quilts away.  It's been a joy to show God's love and appreciation to our veterans!   Written by Cathy Hajek
