Immanuel Lutheran Church

Thank you Lebanon Lutheran School!!!!

First Quarter Offering to benefit the feeding program at the orphan project!!!

A huge thank you to the students at Lebanon Lutheran School in Lebanon, Wisconsin. The have collected $1,159 from their offering from their weekly chapel service and have chosen to donate it to Malawi Orphan Care Project to provide food and general support for the children at the orphan project.

Malawi is entering their ‘hungry season’. The ‘hungry season’ is a time when the food from the last harvest is gone and the next harvest is still months away (in April, 2017). During the coming months the orphan project will be increasing the number of days that they feed the children to six (from four) and the number of children fed will increase, too. Currently they regularly feed over 600 children. They plan to feed over 800 children and possibly many more than that!!

Thank you Lebanon Lutheran School!!!!

Manna for Malawi

MFM.2 Manna for Malawi raises over $11,000!!!!

Immanuel Lutheran Church (ILC) in Crosby, MN hosted concerts, a meal, and a silent auction to raise money for the upcoming ‘hungry season’ in Malawi. The first annual “Manna for Malawi” music and food benefit event was an incredible success. MFM.6

The event was held Sunday afternoon, June 28, at Brad and Jane Holmvig’s Woodtick Inn in downtown Cuyuna, Minnesota, 6 miles north of Crosby. More than fifty donated silent auction items perched on the pool tables and shelves across the room from the band stand.

ILC’s Churchyard Bluegrass band and an Anoka area band, Gravel Roads performed for three hours while hundreds ate Maucieri’s spaghetti, meatballs, and salad and washed it down with coffee and lemonade furnished by Crosby’s “Mixed Company” Kava House.

MFM.17So far, the donations, silent auction items and free will offerings have brought in over $11,000! And every nickel goes to support the orphan’s feeding program.

Thank you Immanuel Lutheran Church!!!!

Note: Due to the ill timed rains during the last growing season in Malawi, the harvest was very small. The orphan project is expecting to need to feed more children more often from November through March to help them survive until the next harvest.
