GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - Some Gulfport children pitched in this week to help those who are thirsty. The Vacation Bible School class at Westminster Presbyterian Church collected hundreds of full water bottles. Friday, the pastor presented the gift to a board member of Feed My Sheep.

The theme of the bible program is Splash in God's Word, and the lessons focused on water themes, so the children wanted to put their faith into practice.

"I think it's truly amazing," said the Rev. Will Shurley. "We have about 30 children here at Westminster Bible School, but those 30 children have brought in somewhere in the neighborhood of 700 bottles of water. Hopefully, that will keep the thirsty in Gulfport well supplied in water through Feed My Sheep this summer."

The church wanted to donate to Feed My Sheep, because the idea to open the soup kitchen actually started decades ago during a Sunday School class at Westminster.
