Nursing Students Serving with Mercy Medical Team

2017–2019 Mission Grant 17 — $25,000

nullHow then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in Him of whom they have never heard? Romans 10:14
As God's children, we are called to tell our neighbors the Good News of Christ's salvation, given for all. A short-term mission through the LCMS provides an opportunity to share God's grace with our brothers and sisters, wherever they are located.

Seeking to expand their educational exposure, nursing students in the Concordia University System would be afforded the opportunity to participate in a short-term mission trip to Madagascar with a Mercy Medical Team. This service opportunity for students to work with medical professionals in providing medical and/or spiritual care to the under-served would be invaluable.

Education Loan Repayment Assistance Grants

2017–2019 Mission Grant 16 — $100,000

nullWhile all grant applicant and recipient information is confidential, these images reflect the called workers, families and ministries uplifted by your support.

Twenty called church workers, each year during the biennium, will each receive a grant of $2,500 through MinistryFocus, an LCMS Recognized Service Organization (RSO), to assist in repayment of educational loans accrued in preparing for service to the Lord through the church. Repayment of educational debt is often made more difficult by the very modest salaries of church workers. This problem may affect recruitment, performance, and retention of church workers.

Laborers of Love

2017–2019 Mission Grant 14 — $100,000

nullLBW's ministry lovingly reaches out to people who are visually impaired to create a connection to the Word of God and His church. As messengers of the gospel, we walk hand-in-hand with faith that love works.

Lutheran Braille Workers (LBW) has been providing God’s Word to the visually impaired since 1943, utilizing the New International Version of the Bible for the past 25 years. With the use of the English Standard Version (ESV) by the LCMS, LBW desires to offer people with visual disability the opportunity to worship and study with the same translation of the Bible as sighted people of the Church. These funds will assist in the cost of the production of the zinc plates for each Braille Work Center along with producing the ESV Bible in large print.

Y4Life seeks to equip young people to be the voices for life in a culture that glorifies the choice of death. The need is especially true for teens, college students, and young adults who are bombarded with secular life styles that are contrary to God’s wonderful plan for life. Currently, the Y4Life program is serving college campuses. The mission grant funds will go directly towards expanding the initiative to include Lutheran high school campuses. By training student leaders and providing ongoing mentorship and support for the individual campus ministries, they can raise their voices for life.
