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.
A very special thank you to everyone who donated and purchased books. Thanks also to Carolyn Higgins, Ruth Neil, Paul Grichen, and Dennis and Sue Gougeon for their help with the sale.
Please watch the St Paul quarterly newsletter, office e-blasts & your bulletins for more opportunities to help support the mission work of WELS & WELS Canada. Check out the WELS Website for Mission news, and please, always remember to include our Missionaries in your prayers.
Joyfully Serving as Heirs Together
