Valentines with a message

My girls are in a Missionary Girls Club at our church.
They meet once a month or so. It is run by a few of the "older" woman of our assembly. This too is so sweet to see the older woman teaching the younger.
(It is a wonderful thing to do for young girls or young people in general if you are looking for a club to start within your church,etc.) They learn about a new missionary each month and make a craft or write letters, etc for them. Sometimes the missionaries are in town and can speak to the group. They also do other things to help out or witness to others.
This past time was during a snowstorm so they had to cancel it. One of the leaders sent home packets of the craft for us to do at home. I am so thankful for it because if was such a fun time with my girls, sitting and making these sweet Valentines. They are going to be handed out at the church service we do at a local retirement home.

The hearts are woven together (a little tricky at first) and they make a pocket. Inside the pocket, we placed a white heart with John 3:16 printed witht he VALENTINE letters in red. The front said Happy Valentine's Day with our church name and the girls were to sign their names. We also included a tract about John 3:16!
"For God so loved the World that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life!"

Here is my (middle) daughter with her favorite heart Valentine she made! :)
