Afghans For Veterans

There is a group of ladies in Coushatta who get together every Monday morning to sew.  They call themselves Sewing God’s Love.  One of their ongoing projects is to knit afghans to give to veterans.

Last Sunday morning group members gathered at First Methodist Church with examples of their afghans with patriotic designs.  They were presented on the church altar railing to be blessed.

Pastor Stuart Sherman prayed that the vets who received the afghans would realize that they are getting a gift of love from the ladies who labored to make them.

The program of giving area veterans has been ongoing for several years.  In recent weeks the group presented them at various area churches.  At a couple of churches, they ran out before every vet in attendance got one.  So, the ladies are meeting again next Monday to continue Sewing God’s Love.

Group spokesperson Susan Taylor said they would welcome anyone who would like to sew and benefit members of the community.  Contact Taylor at 318-932-6253.
