An Elkhart church wanted to share some positive messages with complete strangers. They did that by releasing balloons. El Divino Redentor Missionary Church members and others who joined in on the event and sent the balloons off on Sunday afternoon.

There were cards tied to the balloons with Bible passages and messages of peace. Judith Sievers is a Youth Group Leader for the church. She says the idea behind the balloons is that they reach people who will have their day brightened after reading the message.

"It's an act of faith. Some people are like 'It's going to get stuck.' No you have to have faith that God is going to send it to somebody in their hands," Sieves said.

There were around 250 balloons released.
