Partners in mission,
Lutheran World Relief is celebrating the generous support of the ELCA and congregations for our work in the Philippines in response to Typhoon Haiyan. We’d like to invite congregations to join in that celebration and express a word of gratitude by sharing with their members our newly designed bulletin insert now available online. Sharing this in your upcoming communications with the congregations and leaders of your synod would go a long way in helping to express our gratitude. If you would like text to help you quickly share this resource with your contacts please feel free to use the text in italics below:
Lutheran World Relief gives thanks to the ELCA, its congregations and members for our lasting partnership in our long-term response to Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. Through your support, the ELCA has given LWR a second $1 MILLION GIFT that will help recover sources of livelihood lost by families in this storm. Lutheran World Relief would like to express their gratitude for the partnership and generosity of your congregation and members by sharing a special BULLETIN INSERT that can be downloaded online. Download, print off and share the gratitude with your congregation on an upcoming Sunday. And from LWR…THANK YOU!
