Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, Indiana, is in the business of training future pastors and Deaconesses for work in the LCMS. Students often struggle under the load of financial obligations which is where the Food and Clothing Co-op is a real and present blessing. The gift of $10,000 (Grant #3 from the current biennium) was paid in full in early February so that directors there can purchase perishable food which, in turn, will feed families taking advantage of this resource. This is no small thing and we praise God that He guided us in the SWD to send in mites to make this happen.
But... there is more to be done. Grant #4 for $20,000 is designated for A Place of Refuge Ministries in the MIlwaukee area. They are in need of replacing a vehicle used in transporting the residents at Refuge House. God's timing is always right but wouldn't it be wonderful to bless them in the next few weeks? Thank you for sending in your mites on a timely basis.
