Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, Bethany Lutheran Church’s Youth Mission Trip was canceled. So the church developed what they called “Mission Blast” Wednesdays. Each week in July, the youth and some adults did various mission projects around Emmetsburg. These projects included: painting the outhouse at Duhigg Park, a talent parade around Horizons Unlimited homes, hosting a To Go Meal for the congregation, an online t-shirt fundraiser for Global Missions, packing 311 quilts and 81 kits to send to Lutheran World Relief (made by our quilting groups), and picking up trash and sticks around Gappa Point and Duhigg Park.
