2020-2021 Trinity Lutheran School World Mission Project
Our world mission project for the school year will be the Central Africa Medical Mission (CAMM) which was started in 1961 in Lumano, Zambia. Today CAMM oversees a permanent clinic called the Lutheran Mission Rural Health Center in Zambia on the same property as one of the Lutheran churches of Central Asia. CAMM also operates the Lutheran Mobile Clinic in Malawi, which travels to four different villages throughout the week. The buildings used in these villages serve as clinics during the week and as churches on Sundays. The Zambia clinic is completely run by national health care workers, and the Malawi clinic is served by two U.S. employees who work alongside other nationals.
Prior to clinic work starting for the day, a brief devotion is given to all who attend. Both clinics focus on providing Christian counseling and testing for HIV, education and treatment of Malaria, immunizations, wellness education, and treatment of other minor injuries or illnesses.
By partnering with the Lutheran Church of Central Africa and WELS (Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod) missionaries, CAMM provides help for spiritual and physical needs of the people in Zambia and Malawi. CAMM operates solely on donations. Our monetary gifts, provided to them with our mission offerings throughout the year, will allow CAMM to continue touching the lives of over 90,000 individuals on an annual basis.
At Trinity, we hold weekly chapel services. Students are able to bring their offerings as gifts to Jesus in showing our Christian, brotherly love to others. In the classrooms we will have offering banks or envelopes for our students in which to place offerings.
Throughout the school year, we will have a coin drive or two where we will have classroom challenges to help support CAMM in a fun, motivational way! We also encourage our students to participate in household chores to help earn money to donate to our mission project.
We hope to have a missionary speaker and displays from CAMM to connect the students even more so to our mission project. We will keep you updated.
In Christ's Service, Trinity Lutheran Faculty
