Success Story!

Through this extended use of Mite donations, we have enabled and assisted these volunteers as they have reached out to others with the love of God in Jesus Christ. Many have given their silver and their gold, and many have offered their hands and their feet, all in obedient service to our Lord. Praise God for faithful servants. 

This has been a true success story, made possible because of the generous hearts and passion for mission of the women of our PSD LWML and so many others.  People all over the world have heard and seen and felt the love of God in Christ through these volunteers, and the volunteers themselves have been blessed and stretched in their faith by this.  Thanks to everyone who has been a part of this program, and please keep praying for continued funding sources.

The Gospel Outreach Committee will be looking for ways to continue supporting individuals and groups in their efforts to reach out with the Good News of Jesus Christ.
