Darren Vogt teaches 5th & 6th grades at East Fork Lutheran School in Whiteriver, AZ. Darren’s birthday is 2/07/89. His address is: 4325 Fort Apache Rd. PO Box 489 Whiteriver, AZ 85941 If you’d like to send Darren a gift, he could use gift cards for Home Depot to assist in house repairs. Prayers for his encouragement & motivation as well as for the mission school would be appreciated. Photos on East Fork Facebook. Jonah Kroll is a senior at Michigan Lutheran High School. His birthday is 11/10/96. His address is: MLHS PO Box 277 Eau Claire, MI 49111-0277 Christmas Cards would be especially welcomed by these individuals. Did You Know that the East Fork Lutheran School is the oldest WELS mission in the world? Begun in 1896 there are now 76 children enrolled. However, students are being turned away because families can’t afford the $1,700-$1,900 tuition cost, or have unpaid balances. These children desperately need support to make Christian education affordable for all Apache children. Those involved with East Fork would love to fill the classrooms and teach the children the love of their Savior. Our families face increasing attacks from those mired in the darkness of traditional religion. East Fork has what the children desperately need. If you can support the effort, contributions can be sent to East Fork Lutheran School at P.O. Box 489, White River, AZ 85941. More information can be seen at www.eastforkschool.com Look for information regarding marriage retreats sponsored by the WELS Adult Discipleship in the newsletter and brochures for the same in the back of church. Reminder that the Ladies Aid will put together a Heritage Cookbook. If you’d like to contribute a recipe, or more, contact Patsy Hofer before January 31 at [email protected] Her church mailbox is number 113. Or you may give a recipe to any Ladies Aid member. The Ladies also want to spruce up the church lounge. If you’d like to offer ideas, contact Jan Dahlke at 788-5961.
