Trinity English Lutheran Church is partnering with Lutheran World Relief (LWF) and nine other large Lutheran congregations to work together to spur agricultural and economic development in Bihar, India.
Bihar Partnership Working in partnership we will help raise $1,000,000 over the next four years. LWR has identified Bihar, one of the poorest places on earth, as a place rich with opportunity. The money raised will help teach modern agricultural techniques so the people of Bihar will be able to feed their families, educate their children, and enter the economic marketplace with confidence so that they can make their lives better. Our goal for this year is $15,000, which will be matched with $10,000 from our own Trinity English Lutheran Church Foundation, for a total of $25,000 in this first year of the four year partnership.
You will be able to purchase gifts of grain, agricultural implements, training for villagers, and shares of a greenhouse. If you are looking for gifts for that person you know who doesn't need another scarf, sweater, or box of cookies, this may be the thing for you!
It's Easy to Give If you would like to give to help the people of Bihar, and care for God's world in Jesus's name, you can donate by placing a check marked "Bihar" in the offering plate or give online here.
