March 2016
Dear Friends of EKLC,
We greatly appreciate your partnership with us in bringing God’s Word to the people of Morobe Province PNG. Although these people heard the Good News from Lutheran missionaries many years ago, it is amazing to me to see how hearing God speak their language moves them deeply. I wish you could be here to hear what they say about God’s Word working in people’s hears! We enjoy reading about EKLC happenings in your letters. I was glad to see that Pastor Brenda is now full time!
Love,
John and Amy

Good Samaritan Fund
As people in our congregation and community continue to suffer the impact of our recent recession, our congregation has a unique opportunity to care for its neighbors. If you are in need of assistance because of a recent job loss or other financial struggles, please know that you can apply to the EKLC Good Samaritan Fund for financial assistance. If you are a family who would like to help out people who are struggling, but you haven't quite figured out how, consider making a gift to the Good Samaritan Fund. You will know that the money is being used to help people buy food and gas, cover housing expenses, or bring relief from high medical bills and other expenses
