charity: water & Joy Waughtal projects

charity: water Well Project
Since mid-March Resurrection has been raising awareness of water issues among the congregation and raising money to provide a water well in a developing nation somewhere in the world. We started with a goal of $5,000 which would provide charity: water with the funds to begin a new water project. With a variety of fund-raising activities by groups and individuals in the congregation, a matching-fund grant of $1,600 from Thrivent Financial and a $1,000 matching-fund gift from a member of the congregation we have raised $9,399.68 and are looking forward to supplying 2 well water projects!

Joy Waughtal YAGM Support
Resurrection has also taken up the challenge to partially support Joy Waughtal as she gives a year of service to the ELCA Young Adult Global Missions team. Joy will be serving in South Africa with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in South Africa. Joy will be serving in a diaconal HIV/ AIDS ministry with the ELCSA near Johannesburg. Joy needs to provide 40% of the $10,000 necessary for transportation, housing and other costs related to this ministry. Another $1,000 gift in dollar-for-dollar matching funds has been donated to the congregation to support this ministry. As of June 1, $570 (including the matching share) has been donated.

If you would like to support Joy and the YAGM mission you can make a check to Lutheran Church of the Resurrection with the words “Joy YAGM” on the memo line. Members of Resurrection can use their 2nd or 3rd quarter mission envelope. Please clearly mark on the outside of the envelope which of the ministries you would like to support. Deadline for the YAGM support is July 30, 2010.
