ALTAR FLOWERS ON AUGUST 25 are from Melvin Kranz in loving memory of his wife, Ruth, who would have celebrated her 89th birthday on August 13; and in memory of their 67th wedding anniversary on August 30.  The dedication is also in memory of their two daughters, Leslie and Elizabeth (Kranz) Hayes who have gone to their heavenly home.

PRAY FOR OUR MISSIONARIES:  We pray especially for those serving our Lord in Venezuela. The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod began work in Venezuela in 1951. The LCMS has supported church-planting, theological education, and outreach efforts since that time with its financial and personnel resources. The LCMS awarded its first grants to the church in Venezuela in 1990, when it provided health clinic equipment and helped construct a preschool. Since that time, the LCMS has given a half dozen grants to assist the church in human care and disaster response efforts. Today, the LCMS continues to support the Lutheran Church of Venezuela. The Juan de Frías Theological Seminary provides extensive theological training in proclaiming God’s Word and administering the Sacraments. It continues to depend on support from the LCMS, though it is now led by a fully-Venezuelan teaching faculty. May God continue to bless the work of His people in Venezuela!  Please see the map in the Narthex for the location of this week’s missionary country.
