We are in the process of creating “Give Hope For Life” sponsorship Easter Egg Trees for the K – 7 th grade students at the Mapalo Academy. Our trees will have photos and names of the students that are in need of sponsors. This year Easter is on April 1 st and in Zambia the school year begins in April so it is the perfect time to present this opportunity to our church, our community and beyond. $50.00 per month ($600.00/year) is what is needed for each student.
We have two services on Christmas Eve. The first is our Family Christmas Service at 4:00 PM in the sanctuary. This is for children and children at heart, in a wonderful re-telling of the Christmas story and live nativity. Please see the photos of our Family Service, and consider joining us next year.
Familiar with the valley, the Mueller’s are excited to be back in Idaho. They married in 2011 and spent their first five years of marriage in Hailey. A Wisconsin native, Tracy graduated from Concordia University Wisconsin with a degree in Theology. She gained experience working with kids, youth, and families as a Program Director focusing on Summer Camp and Outdoor Education at Camp Omega, Minnesota. This led her to a position in the Sawtooth Mountains as the Director of Programs at Camp Perkins Lutheran Outdoor Ministries.
The community of Nyakapela B, Zambia, was home to 25 families. Although it was a small community, they did have a local health clinic to provide for the residents’ medical needs and a local church to address the spiritual needs of the community. One essential item that the community was lacking was safe water. The existing well in Nyakapela B had fallen into disrepair, and residents had resorted to using a local stream for their water needs.
