Your Gifts Make a Difference: Lutheran Boarding School in South India

Dear Pastor Hoffman,

On Saturday evening and Sunday morning, Jan. 17-18, we were privileged to worship with you and tell you of an opportunity to sponsor children in Lutheran-operated boarding homes in South India. These children are among the poorest of the poor and are among the outcasts in Indian society.

You responded in an overwhelming way. Over 60 children were sponsored that weekend!

Thanks so much, people of St. Philip the Deacon, for your generous gifts and your response to needs throughout the world.

May God bless your congregation as you continue to do his work in ministry.

Gordon Olson
