Mites News Flash - February 2021
What a way to start the Lent tide season. Our mighty mites have funded Grant #6, Establishment of Deaf Outreach Training – $7,000, Ladies Guild LWML, Memorial Lutheran Chapel for the Deaf, Fremont, California. The grant is to establish Deaf Mission Outreach Training in our CNH District to prepare and equip deaf leaders to reach out to the 98% of deaf who do not believe in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Grant funds are for meeting resources, materials/study resources, theological books, Deaf Catechism, and technology.
Your Mighty Mites are now being collected for Grant #7, Seminary Training for Local Church Planters/Pastor – $10,000, LINC Bay Area, Hayward, California. LINC plays an integral role in raising up local leaders to serve as LCMS pastors and church planters. LINC is partnering with LCMS CNH District Bay area churches to develop leaders in cross culture communities for the ministry. This grant proposal requests funding of four $2,500 scholarships that will provide practical and theological training for four church planters/pastors. This training is through Concordia Seminary, which costs $8,000-$10,000 per person annually. Please collect mites for this important ministry to reach out with the Good News of Christ in the Bay Area. Fruit is being produced in unique ways through this ministry.
