PRAY FOR OUR MISSIONARIES:  We pray especially for those serving our Lord in Russia. For 70 years, religion was suppressed under Communist rule in Russia, which was the largest republic of the Soviet Union. Millions of Christians were imprisoned or died for their faith, and 90 percent of church properties were confiscated by the government or destroyed. The Soviet Union collapsed in 1991 and today, religious freedom in Russia is constitutionally guaranteed. The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod began working in Russia in 1992, and in various ways the LCMS assists The Evangelical Lutheran Church of Ingria in Russia (ELCIR).  At the 1998 Synod Convention, the LCMS declared itself to be in altar and pulpit fellowship with the ELCIR, making it a sister/partner church. The ELCIR consists of 15,000 members in 80 congregations with 150 leaders serving as pastors, deacons and deaconesses. May God continue to bless the work of His people in Russia!  Please see the map in the Narthex for the location of this week’s missionary country.

VOTER’S MEETING There will be a Voter’s Meeting on Sunday, July 15 following the Worship Service.

LIFE EVERLASTING:  The promises of our Risen Savior are fulfilled for Walter (Wally) Holtz who finished his pilgrimage on Wednesday, July 11 at an age of 92 years.  We will celebrate God’s grace and Wally’s life with Christ on Saturday, July 14.  Now may our Lord give comfort and healing to his family and strengthen the faith of all of us. Amen.

A NOTE OF THANKS:  Dear brothers and sisters in Christ: My sincere and heartfelt thanks for your prayers, cards and well wishes regarding my recent shoulder replacement surgery. I’m looking forward to returning to church soon!  God bless you. Vanessa Croon
