In December 2019 the hallway at Peace was once again filled with beautiful, colorful knitted, crocheted and handmade fleece hats. With the help and guidance of God, the ladies on the Hats Mission Team worked throughout the year to create warm hats for kids in need. The members of Peace also graciously provided gloves for each child.
In December a team from Peace delivered those beautiful creations, along with a pair of gloves, to more than 300 children at Lybrook Elementary School in Eau Claire where we started our journey in 2011. We have sought the Lord's guidance each year as to where these 'gifts of love' could be used most. This year it was very clear that we should return to Lybrooke.
It has been an amazing journey indeed! It began with a vision God gave to a 16-year-old girl at a church in Granger, Ind., and has grown into an amazing mission, both in Granger and at Peace Lutheran in St. Joseph. Since that first delivery in December 2011, Peace Lutheran Church has shared the Love of God with nearly 2,500 Berrien County children who needed warm hats and gloves.
When God gives a vision he also gives the ability to complete it. We need only to have faith and follow his leading!
Currently, our Hats Mission Team is working on hats for 2020
