Several ladies from St. Timothy Lutheran Church, Wyoming have completed another session of quilt making for Lutheran World Relief. Over the winter months, the ladies met once a week to sew and tie fabric, blankets and batting to fashion quilts that will be used by people around the world. It is possible to track the path of these quilts to see what country they find a home in. The quilts are given to victims of earthquakes and other natural disasters, as well as refuges and many people in need. The quilts are collected in the fall from many different church denominations across the United States and are shipped to countries where they are needed.


For over thirty-five years the women of St. Timothy have been involved in the quilt mission. This year the women who took part in the quilting were: Pat Bachman, Luba Etzler, Marsha Goodwin, Julie Mueller, Ellen Perkins, Carol Stange and Pastor Wendy Popp and her mother Joy. Together these ladies fashioned 78 quilts that will find new homes with those in need. The quilts were blessed with a special ceremony during the regular church service on May 22. It is a satisfying feeling to construct the quilts knowing that they will be used and appreciated by people who are in need and a special feeling to do God’s work through our hands.
