Yesterday was Palm Sunday – the beginning of Holy Week. After worshipping together with palms waving, children singing, and eating bread together, we assembled personal health kits. It’s been our Lenten mission project coinciding with Lutheran World Relief’s Baskets of Promise campaign. We’ve collected bars of soap, combs, toothbrushes, nail clippers, and towels for the last month and a half. Yesterday was the day we put it all together!
We assembled 32 kits together! Thirty-two people who are in need will have a toothbrush and towel thanks to your effort. A huge thank you to everyone who donated to the project and to all who helped assemble them into packages of hope for our neighbors around the world!
