LET'S HELP UKRAINE -- Urgent Request from Pastor Dan's Desk​​​​​

My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, many of you are aware of the situation evolving in Ukraine.  Gelene and I served as missionaries in Ukraine, and we have learned that those with whom we ministered alongside are being directly impacted by these current events.  As we see so many requests for money to support missions in Ukraine from various organizations, it is difficult to know which agency we should support.  We have to ask the question, “Where will my money be used?”

 

Gelene and I served with Spiritual Orphans Network (SON), and I received an urgent request for donations from them this morning.  SON ministers directly alongside Lutheran Churches in the regions involved in this conflict.  I have been informed of the needs of the Lutheran Church in Ukraine, and the surrounding areas of Slovakia, Romania and Estonia.  Monies that are going to Ukraine will support the Lutheran Churches as they minister to those who remain in the country: specifically, through the Gloria Ministry Social Kitchen which distributes over 200 meals per day, plus basic supplies, medicines and other necessities for survival to elderly and shut -in pensioners.  SON is also supporting a congregation in their mission aiding refugees fleeing to safe border countries.  The funding for the Lutheran Churches in the surrounding regions is needed to support these refugees with food, housing, etc.   We have the assurance from SON Ministries, “In all cases, funds will only go to our trusted, long-term, partners.”

 

Please prayerfully consider donating toward this urgent need.  We will be holding special offerings for the next several weeks to aid our Lutheran churches “with boots on the ground” in their ministries to the Ukrainian people.

Send your donations to the church (P.O. Box 8, Birchwood, WI 54817) or use our PayPal link on our website -- TLC PayPal

 

In Christ, Pastor Dan
