Join Little Lamb Pre-School to Help Replenish Health Kits For Lutheran World Relief Efforts...

Little Lamb Preschool in Valparaiso, Indiana

Is collecting

Health Kits For Lutheran World Relief

Please forward this to any other people you can. Churches are asked to please assemble health kits. They are desperately needed due to the Chilean and Haitian earthquakes that depleted Lutheran World Relief''s supply.

Service Project: Lutheran World Relief has a great need for Health Kits in response to help for Haiti. Our preschool would like to help the relief effort by donating health kits. Please consider joining us in making one or more. There will be a collection box in the Education Center hallway now until March 31st. One Health Kit consists of the following items:

-->One hand towel, dark color recommended.

-->One washcloth, dark color recommended.

-->One bath-size bar (4-5 oz.) of soap, any brand, in its original wrapping

-->One adult size toothbrush in its original packaging.

-->One sturdy comb (remove packaging).

-->One nail file or nail clippers with file attached, remove packaging (no cardboard emery boards)

-->Six Band-Aids (or similar brand), preferable 1/2" to 3/4" secured together with rubber band.

Please do not add other items or leave out any of the items listed. All items should be new and in good condition. Wrap smaller items in the washcloth; wrap washcloth and remaining items in the towel and tie securely with ribbons or yarn. Do not enclose the kit or any of its contents in plastic bags.

God's Promises can be Seen in the Midst of a Storm

Remember the saying "April Showers Bring May Flowers" ?

Rainstorms are common in Spring and Summer and with them sometimes you can catch a glimpse of a rainbow like this photo taken during the storm this past weekend.

Rainbows are a visual reminder of God's promise to us. Here is the Message Bible version of just one of many promises... so when you see a rainbow in the midst of a storm this spring or summer, remember God's many promises to us :)

Genesis 9:12-17 (The Message)

12-16 God continued, "This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and everything living around you and everyone living after you. I'm putting my rainbow in the clouds, a sign of the covenant between me and the Earth. From now on, when I form a cloud over the Earth and the rainbow appears in the cloud, I'll remember my covenant between me and you and everything living, that never again will flood waters destroy all life. When the rainbow appears in the cloud, I'll see it and remember the eternal covenant between God and everything living, every last living creature on Earth."

17 And God said, "This is the sign of the covenant that I've set up between me and everything living on the Earth."

Blessings to all,
