Minute for Mission
In India children have a break during the hottest months – April and May. Especially hot weather this year caused a delay in the start-up of classes but school is now officially under way. Elementary school children at Saron (where LPGM supporters sponsor 350 boys) returned to a brand new school, thanks to some very generous LPGM donors. The children and faculty are delighted! Now classrooms will be less crowded and the old building will be used by high school students whose facilities were also overcrowded. The improvement to this Lutheran campus is a cooperative effort between the Arcot Lutheran Church and LPGM.
We still need sponsors for some boys at Saron. Several graduates from Saron have written to us thanking their sponsors and telling about their successes. One has even committed to paying it forward by sponsoring a boy at his old school. You, too, can change the life of one of these boys and build a lasting relationship in the process. Please consider sponsorship of a student. For a $25/month investment, you will be changing a life – literally.

Minute for Mission
A recent article in The Guardian newspaper affirms LPGM’s model of ministry:
Ask, don’t tell: the missionary aid model … (http://www NULL.guardian NULL.co NULL.uk/commentisfree/2013/may/17/haiti-development-missionary-aid-wrong). Every project or program supported by LPGM is the ministry of a local church, which means local pastors and lay people set the priorities, do the work and ensure the sustainability of the program. Our role as partners in a project is to support them, encourage them and connect them to resources which help them improve the ministry and do it more efficiently.
Current Partner Needs:
- Sponsors for over 100 students in India
- Desks and chairs for a Community College in India wanting to enroll more students in its vocational training program
- Half a year’s support for a Village Savings and Loan Program in the Central African Republic
If you would like to partner with Christians doing these ministries (and many others) in India or Africa, please contact the LPGM office.
