Area Students Send Bibles To Troops Overseas 11-10-2010

A very special surprise is on the way for hundreds of troops serving overseas.
Students at Trinity Lutheran in Bay County’s' Monitor Township are sending Bibles with a special handwritten message inside to service men and women.
The kids at Trinity Lutheran are making sure that our troops overseas are not forgotten. They're sending more than 100 Bibles with a special handwritten message inside.
About 160 bibles from the school will be shipped to our troops overseas in time for the holidays.
“It wasn't scripted, they weren't told exactly what to write,” said teacher Joy Feinauer. “They thought it all out and put it down on paper.”
So what sort of message are these elementary school kids sending the troops? TV5 stopped by to find out.
“We're writing a nice message to encourage them to keep going,” said sixth-grader Skyeler Bauer.
“The program is special,” said fifth-grader Tyler Pashak. “We want them to know Jesus so they can go to heaven.”
Second-grader Bayli Kernstock told TV5 how she will measure the success of their Bible efforts when the soldiers get their gifts. “I would like it if they all had a smile on their face,” said Kernstock.
Feinauer said her students know full well that their freedom is not free. “The sacrifices they've made [is] for the freedom these kids now have,” Feinauer said.
The students don't know exactly where the Bibles are going, or to whom they are going, but what they do know is they’ll make a very special connection with someone half way around the world.
