LWML eNews Issue #163 – August 7, 2015
At their June 2015 meeting, the LWML Board of Directors voted and approved redirecting an unused mission grant of $100,000 from the 2013-2015 LWML Biennium to fund a new disaster response center in the Dominican Republic, as well as a conference for disaster response training in Latin America.
The sum of $80,000 will be given to build the disaster response training center in the Dominican Republic. In addition, this center will provide emergency housing for the entire region of Latin America.
The remaining amount of $20,000 will fund a disaster response training conference for pastors in Latin America. This conference will focus on a theological approach to pastoral care after times of tragedy and disaster. Pastors completing the specialized training will then receive individual communion sets to be used during disasters.
