• God's Love in Action


Dear Partner in Ministry,

Crises upon crises. As I've visited with pastors across the U.S. lately, this is the best way I can describe the realities so many of our neighbors are forced to live through.

Fears of COVID-19 infection for those already experiencing crushing poverty and food insecurity in the African Sahel.

Children going to bed hungry in Uganda because families lack the necessary tools and training to farm the land. 

Thousands of neighbors living on the streets of Haiti after a 7.2 magnitude earthquake struck the country already dealing with political unrest and a hunger crisis.

Our neighbors with the very least are facing unimaginable suffering. On any given day, it is difficult to know where or how we might be able to make any difference. And yet God calls us together as the body of Christ, each with our individual gifts and passions, to share our love with the world.

We're inviting congregations to respond to a variety of needs. As a pastor, I know you can't care for all the people whose needs come across your desk. But you know your congregation best. If the heart of your congregation is motivated to ensure that children don’t go to bed hungry, I hope you’ll share Suzan's story and respond generously. If your congregation rises to the occasion to help neighbors in need when natural disaster strikes, please consider a gift to our World of Good Emergency Response Fund.

We are the body of Christ. Thanks be to God that we can do far more together than any of us can on our own.

In deep gratitude for your compassionate generosity,

Rev. Lisa KippSr. Manager, Congregational Engagement lkipp@lwr.org

Your LOVE and GIFT will help those with the very least
