2022-2023 Trinity Lutheran School World Mission Project
Dear Trinity families,
Our mission project for the 2022-2023 school will be support for the country of Ukraine.
Members of the Ukrainian Lutheran Church (ULC), Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod’s church body in Ukraine, along with all the people of Ukraine, have been under Russian attack for months. Many people have fled their homes for safety. Despite the danger and hardships, the ULC is finding ways to help its fellow countrymen. While they’re doing it, they’re having all kinds of opportunities to talk to people about their Savior.
The situation for our brothers and sisters in the Ukrainian Lutheran Church remains very dire. Thankfully, we have learned that none of the pastors or members have lost their lives, but some members have reported that their homes have been destroyed. Some of the pastors and members have relocated to places that are relatively safe and removed from the heavy fighting, but others remain in areas where military activity is taking place every day. We continue to pray for their safety.
Offerings provided will be used by ULC members to buy supplies (medical, food, clothing, blankets, shelter, religious materials, etc.). Supplies are being gathered from certain areas and being brought to refugees in other areas, such as Poland. It is anticipated that the need for assistance is going to be high for years to come. WELS is also anticipating significant rebuilding costs when, Lord willing, the war ends.
The political climate in Ukraine continues to deteriorate as recently won religious freedom is once again being taken away. Please pray for our Lutheran brothers and sisters in Ukraine as they proclaim an even more precious freedom- the freedom from sin, death, and hell purchased and won by our Savior.
Students are able to bring their mission money in at any time to the classroom. At our weekly chapel time, we will bring our offerings and ask for God’s blessing to use them to carry out his Great Commission to make disciples of all nations. Thank you for your prayers and support!
In Christ's Service, Trinity Lutheran Faculty
