Bethany Lutheran Church, Bigfork, MT



Dear Quilters of Bethany,

I just wanted to thank you for your recent donation of quilts

to Immanuel Home. I immediately took them to the laundry

where they were washed and then distributed throughout the

home. The residents love them and it is nice to have that size

quilt available to them. It is especially fun, for me, to tell

them that they come from my congregation in Bigfork.

I, personally, would also like to add a thank-you to you

dedicated quilters, who so faithfully continue to meet weekly

preparing quilts for all types of situations. I know how much

it means to those high school seniors who receive the quilts -

each of my girls appreciated them so much. I would think

that it even means more to those kids who haven’t been a

faithful attendee but they have been included in the love you

show. So as an observer from out there in the pews at

Bethany - thank you for all you do. It is a true ministry.

Dear Friends,
Thank you so much for your donation to Samaritan House. With donations such as yours we were able to provide shelter and related services to 967 homeless individuals while they tried to resolve their crisis. Our facilities allow us to provide much needed shelter,      transitional, and low-income housing.
Again, thank you for your support of this much needed and worthwhile program.

Heifer International
Dear Friends,
Thank you for your kind gift to Heifer International. Because of your generosity, families struggling to take care of themselves and their loved ones are better able to make steps toward self-sufficiency during these winter months.
There is a fantastic quote attributed to Mother Theresa: “We cannot all do great things, but we can do small things with great love.” It seems to embody the spirit of your giving nature.
Thank you for sharing our vision—a vision of a world where all people are fed, sheltered and living sustainable lives. They are able to make a better tomorrow for themselves and their children and ultimately, able to pursue their dreams. Your kindness and generosity truly makes a difference.

Thank You
Dear Bethany Lutheran Church,
I can’t express to you how grateful I am for your generosity. It means a lot to me that this community is still looking out for people in need.
I will be using this money to help pay my student loan bills. It will help me out so much. Both Jordan and I appreciate you and all that you’ve done for us.
Thank you,

Thank You
Bethany Lutheran Church Ladies,
Thank you so very much for the hard work you do to make the quilts and your thoughtfulness to our veterans.
These blankets are handed out when our veterans come out of homelessness and have a home of their own.
They are also put in our Santa’s Workshop where they can pick out one of the quilts as one of their gifts.
Thank you once again as these gifts put a beautiful smile on faces, both those of us who get to see your work and our veterans who are blessed by your generosity.
