Each year the LWMS sponsors the Befriend a Missionary & Befriend a Missionary’s Child programs. This year they
have asked the members of Mt. Calvary to befriend the following 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.
