Mission Grant ResourcesMission Grant Presentation

Please Join in Praising God for His Abundant Blessings!

We were able to present $4,000 ( partial funding) to the Hispanic Ministry in Southeast Texas. Pictured from left to right are: Joyce Mooney, Vice President of the Golden Triangle Zone, Nancy Beckcom, LWML Texas District Structure Committee Chairman and Rev. Tim Dinger, Pastoral Counselor for Golden Triangle Zone and representative of Circuit 34 Mission Council. The presentation was made at the fall rally of the Golden Triangle Zone Rally in Nederland at Holy Cross Lutheran Church.

These monies will be used to fund the ongoing Hispanic ministry in the Baytown, Port Arthur and surrounding area through Sunday worship services, ESL classes, weekday Bible study and street ministries.

Please continue to be faithful in submitting your Mites in a timely manner, our mission grant recipients depend on you.

Spirit of the Living God, on Pentecost You descended upon Jesusí disciples and opened their mouths to proclaim in many different languages the mighty works of God for salvation. Come still today and fill the hearts of Your faithful people, kindling in us the fire of Your love that we share with all. Grant Your blessing upon the Hispanic ministry in southeast Texas as You do Your work of bringing sinners to saving faith through the Word that is proclaimed; through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen. (Prayer written by Pastor Timothy Appel)
