Heart of the Good Shepherd

Church of the Good Shepherd in the Winnipeg suburb of Transcona truly has the heart of the Good Shepherd. This Lutheran Church Canada congregation is deeply engaged in a variety of international and domestic mission and ministry. However, it seemed to me, that they had a special attachment to Canadian Lutheran World Relief.

The LWML provides We Care kits, quilts and blankets as well as financial support. Even the Sunday School children meet their mission needs through CLWR. The members of the congregation are also very generous in their personal support.

Seventy people came to lunch following the service to hear about the work of CLWR. I was pleased to report on some of the life-giving work of CLWR in Ethiopia. They learned more about what Lutherans are doing at the Shirkole Refugee Camp on the border with Sudan, the famine relief work in the Goro District and agricultural development in Rural Ethiopia.

Next week the Sunday School is sponsoring a tea, CLWR will be the object of the free-will offering!
