St. Peter Ladies Lead Local Effort


Pillowcases into Dresses

Children in Haiti, Honduras and Africa will soon be receiving new pillowcase dresses and boys’ shorts. Almost 350 pillowcase dresses and two pairs of shorts were blessed by Pastor Rusty May at a recent Sunday service at St. Peter Lutheran Church. The children who receive these gifts are so very delighted and grateful for the generosity and prayers of strangers. Missionaries report that they can use hundreds more.

Over 300 pillowcase dresses were created by a group led by ladies from St. Peter Lutheran parish. Photos provided.

Several ladies from St. Peter Lutheran Church, and others from a number of local churches, enjoy fellowship and sewing pillowcase dresses and shorts on Monday mornings at the Church. They are always looking for more hands to join in this labor of love and sincerely appreciate all donations of pillowcases and money that they use to buy sewing notions and pay shipping costs. For more information about this project, please call the Church office at (239) 463-4251.
