Lord of Life member Rog Klosterman is coordinating an effort to fill an apartment for a person in need of assistance. She and her children will be reunited and have their own apartment, but do not have the ability to fill it with basic items for running a household. Here's a list of what we are looking for:
"34 Then the king will say to those at his right hand, ‘Come, you that are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; 35 for I was hungry and you gave me food
Wise words for the space in between what was and what will be." Matthew 25:34-35
Perhaps you saw the great news that the ELCA congregations of Greater Dubuque received a hunger grant in the amount of $7200 from the Dubuque Community Foundation to offset the cost of delivering food to hungry people through mobile food pantries. It was included in the June newsletter. That is exciting news because it ensures our ability to provide mobile food pantries all through our community.
I'm excited to tell you that we have also received another grant in the amount of $3600, specifically for Lord of Life's hunger ministries including our Little Food Pantry. I am so grateful to Lord of Life member, Pastor Karla Wildberger, for seeing the grant process to fruition on our behalf.
Ministry and mission at Lord of Life continue, even if we are social distanced (for now!). Your prayers and financial support are making a difference, friends. The Spirit is moving all around and through us to provide care for our community and love for neighbor.
In peace and hope,
