Our church supports a group of young girls from the Maasai tribe in Kenya. The laws in Kenya make female circumcision illegal, but the Maasai tribe continues to practice this and to marry girls off as young as 8 years old. Cost is approximately $35 per month with approximately $15 per month for books, school supplies, hygiene products, and uniforms that need to be replaced every other year. In November when the schools let out, we help pay for a safe house for the girls to stay in until school resumes in January. If you are able to support a girl monthly or would like to make a donation make checks out to LHCF with Mission Rescue in the memo line. Any questions see Jan or Matt Abbott.

Please consider sponsoring a student of the Divine Nursery and Primary Day and Boarding School in Fort Portal, Uganda, Africa, whose overseer is Bishop Jimmy Katuramu. The 2020 school year starts January 26th and has 3 terms. The cost for non-boarders is $50/term, for a total of $150/year. The cost for a student who boards at the school is approximately $115/term, for a total of about $350/year. If you want more information about sponsoring a student, talk with Mary-Jo Asher.

RACISM AND INJUSTICE

FOR IMMEDIATE PRESS RELEASE

Alliance of Warren Evangelicals Denounce Racism and Injustice

June 3, 2020

Warren, MI—As members of the church in the city of Warren, MI, we deplore the actions that have occurred in our nation with the senseless death and precious loss of life of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis police officer. We recognize that the abuse of police authority in this situation represents not an isolated incident, but a pattern of injustice in which Blacks and other people of color have been unjustly treated by the very arm of society that is meant to protect, serve, and nurture peace for all members of our society. We stand with all the people of this nation and ask for transformation of societal practices to reverse the course of history in this nation. We ask our leaders in government, in the judicial system, in the legal system to begin to address these matters, which are not new issues, but have represented the practices at work in this nation for over 400 years.

Psalm 89:14 reads, “Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne; steadfast love and faithfulness go before you.” We cry out to God for His grace and blessing to pour these out upon our city and nation in this most fateful hour. We ask for a vision to remove ourselves from national immoralities, and not to sanction national complacency. We ask for healing for the trauma perpetrated upon the Black members of our society and ask that you would transform the ways in which we, as citizens, have sanctioned or tolerated abuses against humanity.

We stand with the right of those so harmed by racism in all its forms to gather to peacefully protest and to lift their voices in calling this nation to return to justice. While we do not approve of violent and destructive behavior from some of the protesters, we do not wish in doing so to summarily fail to recognize our own complicity in the injustice perpetrated through years and centuries upon Blacks and other peoples of color. We must recognize, confess, and turn from all injustice and begin to create a national and social climate that provides equal access for all peoples to peace and the blessings of God for which we all strive.

Finally, we join together in the church of Jesus Christ with all our brothers and sisters in this nation, and we pray that the Lord would look down upon us in this time of trouble and pour out His compassion and mercy on us so that the changes necessary, changes unprecedented in our American history, will be granted to us.
