  • Is God watching over Beaver Lake residence?

    By Janie Bowen

    When Melinda Campbell came across a moth that had what looked like a cross with Jesus on it, she took a second look.

    She found the moth in her Beaver Lake home and tried to catch it but couldn’t but she did get a picture.

    When you look at it closely it does resemble the cross with Jesus.

    When she brought the photos into the office she wasn’t sure what kind of moth it was but she referred to it as the Jesus moth.
