LBW Funds Reallocated from India to Central and South America
Lutheran Braille Workers requested a reallocation of funds for MG #19 in August 2022.
Per LWML Bylaws: ARTICLE XVII—MISSION GRANTS
Section 3b. In the event that changes in mission grant plans occur after the recipients have been selected in convention, the Board of Directors shall be authorized to approve the amended grant or reallocate the funds.
Three main issues prohibit outreach in India currently: Covid 19 virus long-term impact, Indian government regulations and global supply chain issues. However, God has provided a new opportunity for Lutheran Braille Workers in Central and South America, with orders for Spanish Braille Bible from United Bible Societies. The first order of 500 Bibles for Argentina is 22,000 volumes of God’s Word. Today Lutheran Braille Workers is the last ministry in the world mass-producing Spanish Braille Bibles.
At the October 2022 LWML Board of Directors (BOD) meeting, the BOD approved reallocating the distribution of the $100,000 from India to Central and South America. It is our prayer that God’s Word will be shared in India one day soon.
