Update on Wilken/Schwarz Fund

Our counters counted tonight, and I believe that with tonight's total, the account here at St. Paul's has received a tad more than $34,000 since its inception. That's not counting whatever was given through the Paypal Account on Wittenberg Trail, which has raised $14,000. Thus, a total of $48,000. God bless you all for your generosity! Funds have literally come in from all over - not just the United States, but Australia, Japan, Austria, and Canada.

After reading the latest Augsburg 1530 blog, I was wondering - will Jeff & Todd be needing more funds for attorneys in the days ahead? I for one, would be happy to continue to contribute to help with that too. I hope that is not too personal of a question?

Yesterday our congregation voted to take the money we *were* going to send to Synod ($1,200) and send it to the Wilken/Schwarz Fund instead.

A very wise man said to me last week about this fund, "This proves Lutherans do good works."

Thanks to all for your generosity.

This is wonderful, but it's only $24,000 per family so far. You'll want to keep those gifts coming.
