A word from Pastor Arthur

November 2018 - Many thanks to the strong turn out from TLC members at the 3rd annual Center for Changing Lives – Liberia fundraiser!
The event took place this past October 4 at the Lutheran Social Services Center for Changing Lives in Minneapolis. We enjoyed excellent Liberian food, drumming and dancing from Minnesota based West African group Titambe, and an update on the good work going on in rural Liberia. The number of Ebola and AIDS orphans who are now in school as a result of this partnership has gone from 25 two years ago to 60 this school year. Philip Nushann and members of his team joined us via Skype from Liberia.
Thanks to a matching grant of $10,000, the event raised approximately $19,000 in total. If you are still interested in supporting this important work, we are in need of another $1000 to help us make the match and put the CCL-Liberia team in a good position for the coming school year. Donations may be sent to TLC either by check or online designated to Liberia.
