When the ELCA Malaria Campaign reached its goal of $15 million, Brenda Wagner, vice president of the ELCA Northeast Minnesota Synod, contacted local media to lift up the success. Wagner has visited many Northeast Minnesota Synod congregations to educate them about malaria and thank them for their generosity. First Lutheran Church in Aitkin, MN is one of those congregations.
Each year, First Lutheran focuses on a specific mission. For two years the congregation has chosen to support the ELCA Malaria Campaign. Read more about First Lutheran Church’s commitment here.
