NBC News and the TODAY Show published a report from the Central African Republic today, highlighting how years of conflict is having the greatest effect on those most vulnerable: children.

LPGM wouldn’t exist as an organization if it wasn’t for the kind, faithful people in the Central African Republic who responded so graciously in the early 1990s when Tim Olson was tragically killed. In the aftermath of his death, the local workers and church members continued building the church he had been supervising, ultimately dedicating it to his memory and naming it “St. Timothy Lutheran Church”.

Thanks to your support, we’ve been able to walk with the Lutheran Church in C.A.R. (EEL-RCA) over the past 20+ years. Your gifts have empowered women, built healthcare facilities, given small-business owners some financial stability, and so much more.

Donate to Help Children in C.A.R.

LPGM is committed to continue our work in C.A.R. We are currently in discussion with the EEL-RCA about the educational needs of children, and how your donations can transform lives for the long-term.

Thank you

When Jesus told the parable of the sheep and the goats in Matthew 25, he said:

I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing…

Just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.

Thank you for your history of providing for “the least of these”.
