BACKPACKS FOR MLOWA STUDENTS

BackpacksMlowaOver the past few years we at Christus Victor have been sponsoring around 28 students to attend school in Tanzania. Many families have been faithful in continuing this year after year to ensure these students have continuing financial support to further their education.

Pastor Kent and Paula Nierengarten will be visiting these students on their trip to Mlowa in August. Please consider purchasing a backpack for the cost of $25.00. The money will be used to purchase supplies in Iringa to fill the backpacks and distribute them to our students.

In order to participate, please take an Orange “mini-pack” off the Missions Bulletin Board and deposit a check for $25.00 in the attached envelope, filling out your name and maybe a small note for the student. We will then ask you to have your picture taken. The student receiving the backpack with the supplies you purchased will receive a picture of you. A picture will also be taken of the student that receives your backpack and bring that back so you can see the face of the child that received your gift.

The school supplies are being purchased in Iringa to support their economy and to lighten the weight of suitcases being brought over. Any questions please contact Paula @ (651)343-3100 or Pastor Kent @ (952)454-6927
