Dear St. Mark,
We have seen it many times over. When times of uncertainty hit, God’s people rally around those in peril. Indeed, we are in such a time. As COVID-19 continues to cause great levels of uncertainty all over the world, St. Mark Lutheran Church, has the opportunity to
Branch Out in Love
to Our Community and the World.
I would like to invite you on a new journey as we partner with Faith Lutheran Church in Appleton, WI and Sunnyview Christian Church in Oshkosh, WI to walk alongside the people of Puerto Abajo, Guatemala and support them as they work to create sustainable change in their community. In conjunction with Children’s HopeChest
, there are many ways we can support the work of those living in this amazing community!
First and foremost, they need our prayers!
Please pray for Mayra and Ismael Ramirez as they lead the charge and work tirelessly to serve the children and families in Puerta Abajo.
Second, they need our financial support!
By sponsoring a child from Puerta Abajo
you can empower that child and build a lasting relationship as you financially support the work being done in their community. You will have the opportunity to write letters to and receive letters from your sponsor child, creating a lasting, personal relationship. Your ongoing financial support of $45 per month will provide for emotional, environmental, educational, and medical needs of the community. St. Mark is responsible for sponsoring 10 children from Puerta Abajo so if you are interested in sponsoring a child, please contact Susan Ellefson by clicking the button below.
