It is a Christian fund raising organization committed to supporting programs and ministries that promote excellence in education, spiritual growth and primary health care of Haitians in need.

We also send support directly to La Iglesia Luterana Augustina de Guatemala. (ILAG) From their brochure (prepared by the Easter Lutheran Church in Eagan, Minnesota)

Founded in 1991 by Padre Horacio Castillo, the ILAG (Iglesia Luterana Agustina de Guatemala) ministers to people from the margins of Guatemalan society, particularly the indigenous poor. The church has about 2,000 members in 17 congregations. The ILAG also operates an elementary school in Guatemala City.

Quilts for Lutheran World Relief

During the winter season (Oct through about April/May) the ladies of the congregation get together and assemble quilts for Lutheran World Relief Services. (Please click here for photo). From the LWR quilts website, a Quilt and Kit tracker shows individual distributions In 2016 our shipment of 23 quilts will be in boxes with our church’s unique barcode and we will be able to track our donations to their destinations on the globe. Our Donor ID is 103182 for the Quilt Tracker.
