Angel Tree Creativity

Join us for a time of intergenerational fellowship, learning and creativity as we hear about the important ministry we support at the Lutheran Secondary School for MaaSae Girls in Monduli, Tanzania. Every year, the St. John’s Angel Tree is the way we raise scholarship money for the five “St. John’s Girls” we support at the school. We have been providing scholarships for twelve years. Fifteen to twenty young women have received the gift of an excellent high school education. All of them have graduated with some going on to college to become teachers, nurses, accountants, or physical therapists. Educating the women of a village raises the standard of living for the whole village. We will make Christmas ornaments with age-appropriate projects for children and teens. Our ornament making session will be led by Kelly LeMarbe who is coordinating the Angel Tree project. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate.
You can help by making ornaments and donating hand-made objects for the table under our Angel Tree to be sold. Monetary donations are also needed—perhaps a full or partial scholarship. $85 per month or $1,000 per year provides a young woman with a full year’s room, board, fees, books, supplies and uniform, giving her an education she would otherwise not receive. So come on November 11th and be an angel by making angel ornaments to support our five angels at the LSSMG in Monduli!
