Update from Redeeming Life Maternity Home

2015–2017 Mission Grant: Redeeming Life Maternity Home — Sanford, Florida, $100,000 fully paid


Mission Grant # 5 — Redeeming Life Maternity Home (RLMH) recently received $50,000 of its $100,000 LWML Mission Grant for the 2015–2017 biennium. Bunnie Koelsch, LWML Florida-Georgia District President, had the joy of visiting the home and presenting the check.

Located in Sanford, Florida, RLMH exists to offer hope and opportunity to single, expectant women in crisis. They provide a safe and comfortable home as well as opportunities to gain the life skills necessary for success and independence. Each resident takes part in educational and/or employment planning, classes in financial literacy, cooking, household management, and parenting skills. Individual and spiritual growth is fostered by the caring staff of RLMH.

Capable of accommodating up to seven residents, the two women currently living in the home are expecting in the near future. The home is located across the street from Lutheran Church of the Redeemer where the women attend church. It was with great joy that on Sunday, June 5, 2016, one of the residents was confirmed. Thankfully, we were able to provide the first half of their Mission Grant to help them continue this good work.

Check Presentation: Disaster Response Trailers

2015–2017 Mission Grant: Disaster Response Trailers, $80,000 fully paid

Grant check for 2015–2017 LWML Mission Grant: Disaster Response Trailers presented by Sally Handrick, LWML Mission Grants Committee Chairman, to Rev. Kevin Robson, LCMS Chief Mission Officer.

"On behalf of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, we are humbled and awed at the sacrifice, the partnership, and the love that is being expressed by the LWML in this generous gift."

"These disaster trailers, beyond directly affecting people who are impacted in some way by a catastrophic disaster in their own context, are also going to serve as a marvelous beacon and emblem of our desire to serve our neighbor and to educate the Church about the need to be prepared to serve our neighbors who are in such need."

The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) Disaster Response will provide matching funds with this grant to 20 congregations to establish a disaster response equipment trailer for use in their respective districts. These equipped trailers provide all the necessary tools to get to work immediately upon arrival in a disaster area. In this way, they aren’t a burden to those affected, but rather are able to bring relief and comfort. Currently, there are over 12,000 individuals from across the LCMS who have received Lutheran Early Response Training (LERT) and the number grows every month.

Thanks from Saint Paul Lutheran High School

2015–2017 Mission Grant: "We Are God's Workmanship," $32,500 fully paid


Saint Paul Lutheran High School 
2015 LWML International Mission Grant 
"We Are God's Workmanship" 

Saint Paul Lutheran High School has been blessed with students from our area, from throughout the United States, and from around the world. Many places in the world do not afford students the opportunity to advance their academic education in a Christian environment. 

Students from countries where the cost of education, and the places of education are beyond their financial means and their borders, have found their way to Saint Paul. There is a culture on our campus of acceptance and understanding of the diversity of languages and cultures, and a safe place for students from those countries to prepare to be leaders who will declare Christ when they return to their homes. It is the primary mission of Saint Paul to afford this opportunity to those families and students. 

nullThe Mission Grant of $32,500 presented to Saint Paul by the LWML will make it possible for students who are presently with us from Ghana, Liberia, Ethiopia, Slovakia, and Nicaragua in particular to grow in their education and faith as teenagers in a Lutheran culture and worldview. Their future vocations will include the joy of knowing Jesus as their Savior, and together with the other students at Saint Paul, share in that journey of faith. 

We thank the LWML for partnering with us to bring these students into our Saint Paul family, and trust that God will use this investment in our ministry to bring the Gospel to a future generation of "Saints" around the world.
