Mission takes the bus

graphic of busBecause many Lutheran women use a small container called a “mite box” to collect their spare change, a grant of $18,000 has just been sent by LWML–Canada to La Ronge Lutheran Fellowship in northern Saskatchewan to enable them to purchase a twenty-four passenger bus. Why, you may ask, can buying a bus be considered “mission”?

La Ronge Lutheran Fellowship has an active ministry to the aboriginal people in the communities of La Ronge, Air Ronge and Sucker River. Some families live as far as thirty kilometers (eighteen miles) away from the church. None of these communities have public transportation and many families cannot afford a car. Hence a bus may be used to transport families to worship, Sunday school, Bible studies, vacation Bible school and youth group activities.
