2017–2019 Mission Grant: Family Scholarships for Short Term Mission Trips; $60,000 partially paid

You are Making an Impact with prayers and mites for an estimated 10,000–15,000 lives through Grant #21 — Family Scholarships for Short Term Trips. “It was a pleasure to present this partial payment for their Mission Grant!” said Susan Gruber, LWML Michigan District President. This partial payment for $20,000 will help provide scholarships for families participating in mission trips as the voice, hands and feet of Jesus. They will share their gifts and talents to help people in need by “empowering the found in reaching the lost.” Sarah DePriest from MOST shared, “We appreciate you all coming out and sharing a meal with us too … it’s always great for the board to put faces and names together and for them to know who is supporting us!”  In order for LWML members to hear “first hand” how mites are impacting lives, short term mission trip participants receiving scholarships will do post-trip presentations which include sharing their personal mission trip experiences in how the Gospel is engaging, equipping and encouraging others with the love of Jesus.
