When my 6-year-old grandson Ryan comes running to me and covers me with wet kisses, throws his little arms around me, and tells me “I love you,” it just warms my heart. Ryan is a disabled child with Luscan-Lumish Syndrome, an intellectual disability, kind of rare, not much is known about it. Ryan is a child of God. He prays and sings songs of praise by memory. He has a great smile that melts your heart.
I received a beautiful letter from Jedd Lapid, Vice President of Development at Bethesda Lutheran Communities for the $100,000 check received on March 20, 2018 for our mission grant, "Sharing Jesus with People with Disabilities." He thanked the ladies of LWML for their prayers and support as we continue the work of spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ to people with disabilities.
This mission grant is one that melts my heart because we sometimes forget that children with disabilities are God's children too! But not only the disabled. There are children out there who are hungry, who are homeless, and who are hurting. They need your support and prayers, please consider making an extra donation to LWML for mission grants.
