A prayerful commitment

Posted on August 11, 2010 by Global Mission Support

The prayer reminder card prepared for the Strickerts' commissioning service.

Gloria Strickert shared this prayer reminder card that St. Paul  Lutheran, their home congregation in Waverly, Iowa, prepared.  The prayer reminder card will be distributed on Sunday, August 15, as the Rev. Fred and Gloria Strickert are commissioned to serve as ELCA Missionaries in Jerusalem.

This card illustrates the three-fold commitment of ELCA covenant sponsors to support a missionary prayerfully, financially and with encouraging communication.  Gloria and Fred are two fine examples of our 225+ ELCA missionaries serving alongside global neighbors in 50 countries.  ELCA Missionary Sponsorship helps make these “make a world of difference” ministries possible.  Learn more at www.elca.org/missionarysponsorship.
