When Steve and Nancy Laible traveled to Bangladesh in December 2016, they carried with them the love and warmth shared by the first communion classes at Nativity Lutheran Church. Each year the participants in first communion classes prepare a personalized panel that becomes part of a quilt. The Bangladesh School Project has been the recipient of the gift of quilts to be shared with children in Bangladesh. Due to the travel schedule, there were two first communion quilts available for sharing during the recent trip. One quilt was presented to a family in the village of a Nativity Scholar. The quilt will provide loving warmth to a small child and her family during the coming winter. A second quilt was presented to the younger sister of a Nativity Scholar who will now have her own quilt to keep warm during the cold months ahead.
Many thanks to the participants who prepared the panels and to the helping hands that assembled the lovely quilts.

There are many children in the world that don’t have a favorite toy to give them comfort and hope. Through Global Mission at Nativity we are working to help a village named Foubarka in Cameroon, West Africa. We are helping the Foubarka Village by sending medical supplies and equipment.
Some people at Nativity thought it would be nice to also send a comfort toy for the children with the medical supplies, so they got together and made some stuffed bears.
