A beautiful expression of love for our Savior was witnessed through seeing the youth, youth leaders, and volunteers work together on the WELS Christian Aid and Relief community care and compassion outreach activity at the Youth Rally.

Youth Rally Activity Video

The video and pictures share a flavor of the time spent creating cards and blankets for the packages taken back to the youths’ communities. The packages shared the love of Jesus with first responders, kids in need, and the homebound. Cards and LifeSavers were also shared with many of the police officers, college security, kitchen staff, and other on-campus workers by the youth at the rally. One such story was shared with us the last night at the rally.

If you handed out one of the thank you cards with LifeSavers at the rally and have a story to share, or if you have a story to share about how your gifts impacted the people in your community when you returned home, we would love to hear from you. Also, if you have pictures of your group that you would like to add to the WELS Flickr site, please send them to [email protected].
