2017 Book Sale for Missions a Great Success!

Running throughout the month of June, the LWMS-sponsored book sale was “the best one yet”. Shoppers were enthusiastic about the sheer number of books as well as the fantastic variety and selection. Buyers also took home a great selection of CDs, DVDs and even some vintage LPs to add to their collections. An awesome total of $982.35 was raised, including a $300 grant courtesy of Faith Life Financial. All proceeds will go to support projects at our 5 WELS Canada Mission Churches; Saviour of the Nations, Vancouver, B.C.; Hope, Markham, Ontario; Cross of Life, Mississauga, Ontario; Mighty Fortress, Red Deer, Alberta and St. John’s Wetaskiwin, Alberta.
