On behalf of the Lutheran Heritage Foundation, thank you to the LWML South Dakota District for your generous support of the LHF mission through your mission mites.
Jesus said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children,
you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” –Matthew 18:3
This reference speaks to the innocence and openness that children have in their faith. By the power of the Holy Spirit, A Child’s Garden of Bible Stories in a child’s own language opens the doors to a long, loving and lasting relationship with their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This miracle of faith doesn’t stop with the children of the family. Their parents and grandparents, in reading to their children and grandchildren, are introduced to the Bible and the lifesaving message it offers.
A book is an unaffordable luxury in many countries around the world. Through your generous donation, these books are given free of charge. With just $5, a child and his family can be introduced to the life-saving message of salvation through Jesus Christ. Soon there are baptisms performed and Lutheran churches with growing congregations where there once were none.
Your support of A Child’s Garden of Bible Stories in the languages of Southeast Asia is also instrumental right here in the United States. As pastors and congregations come into contact with pockets of immigrants, they have this valuable resource to help welcome them into the church and explain the Good News.
Again, thank you so much for not only the helpful donations, but also your prayers. May He continue to bless you and the mission work of the LWML South Dakota District!
