Offering for LWR Haiti Earthquake Relief

Hello Everyone, just wanted to drop a quick note to let you know the results of our work to collect for Lutheran World Relief’s work in Haiti. Our grand total of money raised for Haiti earthquake relief is $964.01, this came through our collections during our Lenten Midweek worship and our Ascension service.

I think this is a good amount of money for our parish and it is a sign of what God is doing here. God is using us, the Holy Spirit is working, we are being led and used by our Lord to do his work and to help his people who need it. I also like to think about the fact that God is working beyond what we can immediately see. Because we see what for us is a good collection, but we don’t see how God is working with thousands of churches and millions of individuals to gather resources for his children who are in need.

I look at it and am amazed at what God has done, and is doing, here. I marvel at how God is working and moving in this world. This collection is letting us see a part of all that our Lord is doing for his world.

It is a little thing for which we can say thanks be to God.
