Thirst to Learn: Bible Books for Africa’s Children – Lutheran Heritage Foundation -$100,000

Rev. Dr. Nicholas Salifu, who started a Lutheran elementary school in northern Ghana, states that, “Children can learn.” The children attending the Concordia Preparatory School are learning about the saving love of Jesus and the powerful God who created all. Their textbooks are A Children’s Garden of Bible Stories and Luther’s Small Catechism, translated into their language. The children own their own colorful book and are able to take it home to share with family and friends. The publication and distribution of the books is made possible by Lutheran Heritage Foundation and the mite offerings for this mission grant. For more information on the “Thirst to Learn: Bible Books for Africa’s Children” mission grant ministry, go to www.lwml.org/2021-2023-mission-grant-3.
