PERSONAL MISSION SUPPORT
Dear St Ansgar’s Lutheran Church,
Thank you! Curtis and I just received notification from the ELCA-GM that your congregation has started a covenant relationship with us, including sponsoring us and our ministry in Colombia, thank you!
I would like to take a moment to introduce ourselves to you: Curtis and I are missionaries serving for the ELCA, with the companion Lutheran Church of Colombia (IELCO). We will be completing our third year in Colombia in July. Curtis works with the Human Rights program. He had been doing a lot of work to get ready for the signing on the peace agreement (which, after a long process was signed Nov 30). Now his work revolves primarily around planning with the different churches and their involvement in the implementation of the agreement. I work with the Education Ministry, primarily working in leadership development and strengthening Lutheran identity among the members.
Curtis and I are here for you all too! If you have questions about the ministries happening in Colombia, our work, Global Missions, or anything else, please don't hesitate to ask We think the Church here is doing incredible things and love to share our excitement :)
We look forward to getting to know your congregation better as we begin this partnership. Blessings to you on your ministries, and again, thank you for your support!
Curtis & Katie

Coins for Christ
We are asking for jar donations for a new offering event. At the end of the Church School year, children will bring home a jar. During the summer they will fill it up with coins and bring it to church on Rally Day. On that day there will be different stations around the sanctuary representing different missions that they can donate their money to. They will divide up their money how they choose for the different missions.
