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!

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
