Young Adults in Global Mission – December Special Offering

sarah-vatne-2Sarah Vatne is the designated person to receive Grace’s December Special Offering. As a Young Adult in Global Mission (YAGM) she is asked to raise $4000 and the ELCA provides the other $9,000. Grace’s support given in her name will assist her with her $4000 with the remainder towards the $9000  to assist all 84 YAGMs placed around the globe. See Sarah’s blog of amazing pictures and  story –  https://sarahtosa.wordpress.com/

YAGMs are 21-29 years of age, carefully placed and supported by the ELCA, to be about God’s mission in an “accompaniment” style, in a foreign land. Sarah is placed at  Empangeni, South Africa  working at a “Place of Safety”, which has a boarding school and activity center, which houses and educates children who have been orphaned, abandoned, or abused. As her  Zulu language skills improve she will work directly with the kids who live there.  You can also support Sarah by going to her Giving Page:   http://support.elca.org/site/TR/Events/General?px=1038451&pg=personal&fr_id=1181
