Minute for Mission
During this year’s Give to the Max Day, November 13, 2014 (http://lutheranpartners NULL.us1 NULL.list-manage NULL.com/track/click?u=ceb0bdcd4f4b1ac38e9ca2ddc&id=5a3b2a8099&e=d3427c090f), we lift up our partners at St. Timothy Lutheran Church, and ask for your help in restoring their church.
For those that fled violence in the Central African Republic’s capital city of Bangui, St. Timothy provided protection and sustenance. People slept in the church sanctuary. The church grounds offered shelter and safety within its walls, as tents provided temporary homes for those displaced. Members of St. Timothy’s congregation put their own lives at risk to provide food and aid to those of all faiths in the area surrounding the church. It was never meant to be used for housing and that situation took a toll on the property.
Today, St. Timothy serves as a bridge to that country’s future – offering sanctuary and hope. Our goal is to raise $10,000 for its repair and maintenance. Will you join us in this effort?

GIVE TO THE MAX DAY … 24 hours only … November 13, 2014
This year, LPGM set a goal to raise $10,000 for repairs and maintenance to St. Timothy Lutheran Church in Bangui, Central African Republic. In March 2013 a copu d’etat upset this country and its precious citizens. The church compound served as a refuge and haven for hundreds of Africans during the most intense times of the recent crisis when they fled their homes seeking safety. It was never meant to be used for housing and that situation took a toll on the property.
Anonymous donors have offered a dollar for dollar match for the first $5,000 given to this effort. When you give $25, LPGM will receive $50. When you give $100 it’s like giving $200! What could be more exciting and watch the total grow all through the day! Please pray about the amount you can share and it will be instantly doubled!
Anytime between 12:00 am and 11:59 pm on November 13th, visit the LPGM GiveMN Page (https://givemn NULL.org/organization/Lutheran-Partners-In-Global-Ministry) (https://givemn.org/organization/Lutheran-Partners-In-Global-Ministry) to make your donation. The amount you choose to give is perfect and very much appreciated!
We will post occasional updates on this page as the day progresses. Stay tuned and thanks!
