JUNE AND JULY 2011
John 14:18 reads ” I will not leave you as orphans, I will come to you”
LUGA #2-Orphanage near Luga Russia.
Peace Lutheran has supported this Orphanage for several years now. We have posted pictures of the children for quite some time. Maybe soon the poster will again be on display. The approximately 35 children that get care at this orphanage are specials needs children. Some live at the facility permanetly, some go home on weekends and others may just attend for the day. The funds needed to keep the facility going has been set at $10.00 a month per sponsor and $280.00 is needed for one month at a time. This means we need 28 sponsors a month to meet this goal. With the Lord’s help we have been able to keep up until so far. This $10.00 a month will provide medicines, shoes, food etc. Those of us that have taken this on have felt a real bond with the children there. It would be a great blessing if the Lord would touch your heart and help these children. Please contact Dick Tuers for more infornmation. He can be reached at 303-424-1212.
Dorothy Curtis and her gang have held two sales this year. These sales are a lot of work but are a big plus for funds in the treasury. THESE TWO SALES HAVE GROSSED $2,600.00 +. Please do call her at 303-424-4074 for usuable items and if you feel motivated -help-.!! She will hold more sales.
This is not a fund raiser but under the watchful eye of Ursula Tuers has been a great outreach. These dresses can be sewn from pillowcases or a regular pattern using some of that material that seems to fill many of our closet shelves. Little girls always need dresses !! Call Ursula for a pattern or even fabric and other notions needed. Phone # 303-424-1212. She was able to ship close to 116 dresses in our CWB boxes. These boxes were labeled ‘HAITI” and sent to the International Warehouse in Norfolk, NE, and will be put very soon on a container bound for Haiti.
A slight correction to the May Peace Progress-we received dresses from Mt. Olive in Loveland not Longmont.
Are always needed. We are asking for usuable tie quilts. We have been told that all sizes are welcome. Baby to Grandma and Grandpa ones.!
We have held the one at Peace Lutheran on April 3, and with Thrivent chipping in a generous amount we were able to raise $1,675.00.
More Feeds are acheduled: May 15th at Beautiful Savior in Broomfield, May 22 at Gethsemane in Northglenn, July 17th at Mt. Hope in Boulder,and Gloria Christi in Greeley on July 24th. This leaves August 14rh at Peace with Christ in Ft. Collins and Risen Savior in Broomfield on August 28th.
This does it for now. We do want to thank everone again for all of their work, donations and participation in these projects. God does send the laborers when and where needed.
Philippians 2:13 reads ” for it is God who works in you both to will and to do according to his good pleasure.
