Mission Grant Update and a Challenge

Several grants are being paid on an annual basis and they have received a second year’s funding: the sewing school in Nicaragua, the deaconesses in Nicaragua and Cambodia, an evangelist in Thailand and Concordia Seminary in Ukraine. Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church, Airdrie, Alta. (see photo), also received $3,500 for a community grief counselling project from the Mission Opportunity Fund grant.

Larry Walter, president, and Rev. Darren Dressler of Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church, Airdrie, Alta., receive a cheque for $3,500 from LWMLC treasurer, Linda Horton. The funds will be used for the development and continuation of grief support programming at a community facility. Pastor Dressler is working in partnership with a local agency to give clients Christian guidance as they work through their grief.

It’s time to rise to the challenge!

We have only one year left to fund mission grants from our mite boxes. To the end of February 2014 we have been able to pay just over $55,000 of our $130,000 mission grant goal. That leaves over half to be paid between now and the end of March 2015! Please pray for generous hearts and the desire to share the gospel with those who need to hear.
