Mission of the Month

DECEMBER 2021

Lutheran Braille Workers exists to bring the Word of God to the 253 million people throughout the world who are blind or visually impaired, completely free of charge. Braille is a tactile language, designed to be read with fingers skilled in the Braille language. Our highest priority is Helping People Touch the Promises of Jesus.

This month, YOU can help people with visual disabilities touch Jesus. There will be teams working during the Sunday School time on the 1st and 3rd Sundays this month (our room is under the Sanctuary; stairs can be found by the rear side doors) – we invite you to come watch us work and learn more about what goes into making Braille Bibles. There are different teams you can join that each meet once a month, and checks can also be made out to Grace Lutheran with Braille in the memo.

I would like to invite you to participate in partnering as you are willing and able in this ministry. Together we serve our Lord and Savior, by Helping People Touch the Promises of Jesus.

For more info on how you can help please contact: Uvonne and Jim Duppstadt

NOVEMBER 2021

Dear Fellow Redeemed,

Thank you for your support of Perry Smith School’s in Liberia. As of November 15, 25 students are sponsored by our generous members at Grace.  What a blessing you all are to changing the lives of children and their families as the children learn about Jesus and have a Christian education so they can have a better life.

In this picture from left to right are Pastor Hildebrandt, Pastor R. J. Koland, Dave Horger, Joe Sparks and Perry Smith.  Pastor Doug Widger has been instrumental in working with our board as we move forward in changing lives with the gospel and with education.
We are beginning Sunday school for the students in November with the start of the new school year in Liberia.  Perry’s schools are very blessed with dedicated teachers and Perry is exploring starting 7th & 8th grades in River Cess (the school in the interior of the country).
Once again, thank you for your prayers and support. 

Pastor Hildebrandt

OCTOBER 2021

We want to express our thanks to all the support from the
church for the Embrace Grace baby shower. The love that was
poured out on the girls left a big impact.

Praising God for Colin Toth for taking pictures and for Jessica
Nieves and her team, Joanne Elmers, Vickie Rosentreter and Patty
Smith, for providing the food and decorations.

God has big plans for these girls and it was a privilege and
honor to be a part of it.
