Good Gifts

“Good Gifts” Ministry

ELCA Good Gifts provides more than 50 different gift-giving options that fight disease and hunger, and transform lives around the world.

This year our congregational campaign raised $8,783, which has been increased to $10,000 by the church council. These funds will support communities and strengthen standards of living in many impoverished areas.

Though we cannot designate a specific community for our funds, we are able to partner with the Malawi Health and Wellness program. Through the direction of the Lutheran Church of Malawi our funds will be used to provide access to clean water, sanitation, livestock, farm equipment, fruit trees, medical supplies and medicines, school materials, and mosquito netting.

This is a specific breakdown of expenses:
2 simple water wells
4 latrines
1 fish farm
1 fruit tree nursery
4 women attending farming school
20 sets of farm tools
4 piglets
10 chicks
5 roosters
2 pair of goats
4 colonies of honey bees
1 month of medical supplies
1 classroom of school supplies
1 community of mosquito netting.

Thank you for your contributions to this ministry. You can continue to make individual donations to Good Gifts throughout the year. ELCA Good Gifts provide more than 50 different gift-giving options, starting at $10, that fight disease and hunger, and transform lives around the world.
