Resurrection Voices

 
GRATITUDE

Years ago, I attended a Bible study here at church. The leader suggested that every morning before we get out of bed, we should say, “Thank you, Lord, for another day of living.” That focus has led me on the path of a grateful life.

Gratitude is a combination of thankfulness and happiness. I want my life to reflect that, so I fill my days finding ways to help others. Whatever I can do at church is my first choice. I love singing with the youngest children in our Sunday school each week. Their joy is a gift to me. I enjoy many hours working outside, helping family and friends with their gardens and yard work. Yes, they think I’m a little bit crazy.

God let me to a special couple who needed my help. They have been selling at collectibles shows for more than 30 years, but now they can’t keep up with the packing and unpacking and loading the van. I am doing that for them now. I also do their yard work and have become their “girl Friday” for whatever they need done. It makes me so happy to help them.

On the flip side, my life is blessed in return. My family and friends have included me in so many of their fun activities. God showers us with love and I am grateful for each new day.

2019 Adult Mission Trip
Sponsored by St. Luke’s, Waukesha; Dr. Martin Luther, Oconomowoc;
Atonement, Muskego; Christ the King, Delafield; All Saint’s, Wales

WHAT:  Hurricane recovery on the ocean at Camp Ablemarle in Newport, North Carolina.
Thousands of homes are in need of repair following this year’s hurricane season. It will take many
years for families to recover from the wide-spread disaster brought about by hurricanes Michael and Florence. This year’s trip will focus on helping folks in the southeastern part of the country recover.
At this point, it’s too early in recovery efforts to know the exact locate of our work site. So, we’re
inviting people to put on a servant’s heart and go where God sends us.

WHEN:  Early Saturday, February 23 to Sunday, March 3
 
WORK:  This trip is about serving the neighbor in need. We will be cleaning up and rebuilding homes. There will be a variety of needs presented to us. People with all levels of technical ability will find meaningful work. Some may be put to work cleaning. Others may spend the week drywalling or
working with electrical and plumbing. We will not know what is needed until we are on the ground.
We go as servants carrying new life to God’s people.
 
VOLUNTEER COSTS: Approximately $400 per person. Fees paid will cover transportation and
lodging, food while at our worksite, and programmatic expenses. Participants will need to cover food on the road and any other personal incidentals that arise on the trip.
 
TRANSPORTATION:  Rental vans – 15-passenger style OR the option of flying to destination

TARGET COUNT:  50 volunteers

KICKOFF INFORMATION MEETING:  
Tuesday, December 11, 2018, 6:30 pm at St. Luke’s Lutheran Church, Waukesha
 
We expect this trip to fill up quickly, so registration will be first come, first served.

--------------------------------------------------------------
I am interested in going on the Mission Trip.
(Return this portion to Pastor Kim as soon as possible.)

Lutheran Disaster Response

As part of COR's November Month of Service we are raising funds for Lutheran Disaster Response. Lutheran Disaster Response strives to help the church continue to be a church in the midst of disaster — following Christ’s call to bring hope and healing to our neighbor in need. Some key areas of work include:

•    Providing emotional and spiritual care for people who have been affected by a disaster and for leaders who respond to a disaster
•    Coordinating volunteers through our local affiliates
•    Assisting refugees in a holistic way by meeting the varied needs of the community
•    Promoting disaster risk-reduction by helping communities build their assets thereby reducing the effects of likely disasters
•    Providing long-term recovery efforts by addressing the unmet needs months or even years after a disaster strikes

We ask that you prayerfully consider making a donation to Lutheran Disaster Response to help our brothers and sisters in need
