DEACONESS KATELYN FAREWELL LUNCHEON on Sunday, May 20 after Worship Svc. in the Gym.

PRAY FOR OUR MISSIONARIES: We pray especially for those serving our Lord in Mexico. The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod began work in Mexico in 1940. In 1987, the LCMS began mercy work in Mexico with a grant for earthquake relief. Since then, dozens of grants have supported human care and disaster response efforts. Most recently, the LCMS provided funding for food and clothing, debris removal, and building repairs after Hurricane Jemina in 2009. For a number of years, LCMS congregations and ministries have worked along the 2,000-mile U.S./Mexico border. The LCMS has sent several long-term missionaries to serve with Yselta Lutheran Mission in El Paso, Texas, an LCMS Recognized Service Organization, which operates programs serving border towns and hosts hundreds of LCMS short-term volunteers on servant event trips to these towns. CAN-DO Missions, an LCMS mission society, and Children Christian Concern's Society, an LCMS Recognized Service Organization, also work in Mexico. The Lutheran Synod of Mexico has grown to a baptized membership of more than 1,000 in 20 congregations and preaching stations with a national staff of 12 pastors, lay preachers and other staff. The church operates seven theological education centers, a medical dispensary, and a primary school. May God continue to bless the work of His people in Mexico!

LIFE EVERLASTING: The promises of our Risen Savior are fulfilled for Mr. Thomas Stiso who finished his pilgrimage on Monday, May 14 at an age of 29 years. We will celebrate God’s grace and Thomas’ life with Christ on Monday, May 21. Now may our Lord give comfort and healing to his family and strengthen the faith of all of us. Amen.

WEDDING INVITATION  As announced at the Voter's Meeting, Deaconess Katelyn Hansen and her fiancé, David Strucely, would like to invite the members and staff of St. Paul's to their upcoming wedding, June 9th at 2:00 pm held at Trinity Lutheran Church, Freistatt, MO. However, they know Missouri is too far for many to travel so they would also like to extend an invitation to celebrate their marriage at their picnic reception June 23rd from 2:00-6:00 pm at Mitchell Park in Milwaukee, WI. You may see the invitation in the narthex for more information. Please RSVP to Deaconess Katelyn as soon as you can and please keep their upcoming marriage in your prayers.
