January Featured Mission Grant

nullEach month one grant is featured on the LWML website with a Mission Power Poster, Devotion, Bulletin Bytes, Prayer Guide, and Story. January’s resource feature is Lutheran Bible Translators, Angola, Botswana, Ethiopia, and Namibia. Understanding and acceptance of the Gospel message is the door to Christian faith. The unique mission of Lutheran Bible Translators (LBT) is to make the Scriptures accessible to those who do not yet have it in the language of their hearts. This LWML Mission Grant will provide God’s Word in print and media production in Angola, Botswana, Ethiopia, and Namibia and help in accelerating the accessibility of Scripture. Check out for more information on this grant.
