October 31- 5th Sunday Missions Offering: Sierra Leone

Posted on October 11, 2010

This month, our fifth Sunday offering will go to benefit the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Sierra Leone (One of our members, Elizabeth Bockarie, is from Sierra Leone). Since 1988, the ELCSL has been the companion synod of the NTNL, and over the years we have supported them in many ways: building a center for worship and leadership training, opening a medical clinic, supporting pastor-in-residence Kate Warn from the ELCA to minister in Sierra Leone, building schools, and digging fresh water wells.

Your special offering will go to further the above good work that is being done in the name of Jesus Christ by the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Sierra Leone. Please prayerfully consider how you can support this work. Please keep this country and this branch of the Body of Christ in our prayers throughout the year.
