You’ve probably heard of Black Friday, but have you heard of Giving Tuesday? Giving Tuesday, observed on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, takes the focus off of the commercialism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday and instead celebrates giving back. Our goal is to use Giving Tuesday to spread the Gospel message by raising money and awareness for LWML Mission Grants, which share the love of Jesus throughout all nations.
Thanks be to God for the generous donors whose matching fund offers allow your donation to be tripled in value. Join your LWML sisters around the world in donating on Giving Tuesday. www.lwml.org/givingtuesday
Our Giving Tuesday theme this year is, "From One Generation to the Next, You Can Share God's Love to the Ends of the Earth!"
Here is just one of the many beneficiaries of LWML Mission Grants, worldwide.
Forty years ago, in 1977, through your mite offerings, LWML provided a grant of $80,000 to Lutheran Hour Ministries (LHM) to cover program production expense, studio rental, tapes, and distribution to radio stations. The broadcasts were translated and adapted for Spanish programs produced in Latin America. Almost weekly, a listener would journey by foot to Lutheran Hour located in La Paz, Bolivia to seek Christian literature or counseling.
During this 2017–2019 biennium, LHM will receive, through your mission offerings, a $100,000 grant to proclaim the Gospel via mass media in the Middle East. Since 1977 LHM has been able to broadcast to millions across the world because of YOU. Imagine what you can do in the years to come? From one generation to the next, with God’s grace, and the work of the Holy Spirit we can share God’s love to the ends of the earth.
