One generation shall commend your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts.Psalm 145:4
This month we are highlighting the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML) grant of $48,000 to complete the construction of the school buildings of Lukonda Lutheran School in Uganda.
As God has commanded us, each generation is to teach the next His promises. This grant will complete the second phase of construction of two classroom buildings in the Lukonda Village of the Kayunga District of Uganda, providing a finished space to teach children. Two buildings with four classrooms each were completed in 2016 with labor and materials from Resurrection Lutheran Church in Cary, North Carolina, the Southeastern District of the LCMS and the Lutheran Church of Uganda (LCU).
The people of the village helped by providing bricks and land, but presently the buildings have only exposed brick and metal roofs. They lack doors, windows, concrete flooring and painted walls. One of the rooms needs a temporary wall between two of the classrooms to accommodate weekly Lutheran worship services. This new grant will provide for the finishing touches to make a more comfortable school for educating 100 to 200 children from ages four to twelve. An LCU member will be the coordinator of this project and his expenses will be covered with this grant. He will report directly to the President of LCU.
LWML mites will help Ugandan children learn about Jesus and equip them with skills that will benefit them as they grow spiritually and use their God-given gifts to benefit the next generations. To God be the Glory!
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.”Matthew 19:14
