African Projects Needing Adoption

The following projects have been requested by LCMS missionaries and church leaders from around the world and have been included as part of the Lutheran Heritage Foundation’s budget for the coming years.

To see when a project is expected to be printed, refer to the listed “Projected Print” date. Please note that Q1 refers to First Quarter of a given year (January through March), Q2 refers to Second Quarter (April through May), and so on. Due to circumstances beyond LHF’s control, certain projects may not be completed as planned by the proposed publishing dates.

For the most recent information on which projects are still available for adoption, email or call LHF at (800) 554-0723.

If the project you select has already been fully funded, your gifts will be applied to another project in that same language or to a similar title in another language. Costs listed are for printing expenses only and do not include related expenses such as translation, editing, layout, distribution or introduction.

Gifts are gratefully accepted (including full or partial funding) for the following projects that introduce new believers to Jesus:
