LWML 2018 Bazaar Proceeds….$2816.50!!!! 

WOW!  A big “THANK YOU” to all who came and bought our craft/baked items and our luncheon goodies. 

We also give thanks to our God for the talents and abilities He has given to all those who gave items for sale.   The crafters met many Friday nights and others worked at home; salsa, jams, pie fillings, etc., were canned; and kuchen, bread, bars, and many items were baked.  Lots of work done for missions, but it paid off! 

Our four mission recipients (The Pine Ridge Mission church, the Divine Shepherd Early Childhood Center, Titus Utecht (a seminary student the LWML supports monthly) and Pastor Daniel Jastrum (a LCMS missionary to Japan that the LWML supports monthly) will each receive a check for $705!  What a blessing it is to give!!     

$5,000 LWML Grant Received


At its June meeting, the LWML South Dakota District voted on what mission grants they would support with the mite money we will gather in across the state for the years 2018-2020.   

The Early Childhood Center of Divine Shepherd had submitted paperwork to be considered as one of the mission grants.  We are happy to report that the ECC was chosen as one of the grant recipients in the amount of $5,000. 

This month, a representative of the LWML SD District came to our ECC and granted them a check in the amount of $5,000!  The money will be used to fund the purchase of equipment for the infant and toddler rooms, upgrade the washer and dryer, purchase a commercial refrigerator and to purchase music equipment. 

Thank you to all who “drop their coins” into the mite box the first Sunday of each month at Divine Shepherd Lutheran Church.  These mites make these grants possible!!
