At LCR, we are continually growing in our understanding that we are connected to our brothers and sisters across the globe. We continue to seek ways to educate ourselves about the global scene and to create partnerships with those around the world. Our current projects include:
Peaceworker Quilters -who sew beautiful quilts for Lutheran World Relief. The quilts are sent to sites around the world, including refugee camps. These quilts are used for warmth, but also for shelter. Carrie Hufnal-Miller is the coordinator.
Tanzania Partnership - We continue in our partnership with Irente Lutheran Church and schools in Lushoto, Tanzania. A group of eight from LCR traveled to Tanzania in 2009 to meet our partners and develop a relationship with the pastor and people of the parish. LCR members were received with an overwhelming love and hospitality. This fall, new missionaries from Southeastern Pennsylvania Synod will begin work at Irente Children’s Home. We look forward to a renewed connection and communication facilitated by Tom and Susan MacPherson. Please pray for the MacPhersons and for all the ministries of Irente Parish.
