• LPGM: Transforming lives and changing communities by building lifelong relationships around the world.

Together we can help!

Earthquakes have hit again in Japan and Ecuador. LPGM has partnered with the Japanese Evangelical Lutheran Association (JELA) to help send relief aid. The Japan Evangelical Lutheran Association Foundation (http://jela-foundation NULL.org/) partners with other Lutheran NGOs and church bodies to help alleviate poverty, hunger and disease around the world. JELA programs offer the poorest of the world’s poor hope for a better life today and an even brighter tomorrow. One hundred percent of all donations go directly to designated JELA programs.

The international community of government, NGOs and church-based organizations is responding to provide immediate water, food and shelter for the thousands upon thousands who have been displaced. JELA has joined these efforts, in cooperation with the Japan Evangelical Lutheran Church (JELC) and members of the wider Lutheran family to help people in need. JELA will provide emergency assistance to families in Kumamoto, Japan, where earthquakes have hit several times in the last days. Kumamoto is home to Lutheranism in Japan. The church has two major mission schools and is the location of two orphanages and a Lutheran-affiliated home for the elderly.

Consider a gift to help provide emergency assistance to the families affected by the Kumamoto earthquake. Donations can be made through our secure online donation page (https://www NULL.eservicepayments NULL.com/cgi-bin/Vanco_ver3 NULL.vps?appver3=Fi1giPL8kwX_Oe1AO50jRr0dIa5fFom5K2KIJhr3-r3HO3iVYxvvxhHjRfLOeq662EvVVAEjqawDomKT1pboudnX_TEJdfO4nKH0Xv-Aac0=3) or by mailing a check to Lutheran Partners in Global Ministry, and designate for Kumamoto Earthquake relief on the memo line.

Currently we do not have partners in Ecuador, but we offer our prayers on behalf of those affected by the devastation.
