The Story of the Moravian Stars

The Story of the Moravian Stars

While she was living in Vrbas as a young girl, Elfriede learned to make these 16 point Moravian stars from some ladies in the church.

In 2003 she taught me.

Then when we were in Serbia on the mission trip we spent one evening in Kisać teaching some young people to make the stars. When we returned home we decided that we would make and sell these stars to raise money for the rebuilding of the Vrbas Methodist church. We have sold them for several years at the church craft bazaar and sent the money to the Vrbas church with other donations for the renovations.

So the stars have come full circle as Elfriede’s life did with her return to Vrbas.
