Missionary for a Day
Our Savior's is committed to the financial and spiritual support of Willie and Anne Langdji, ELCA Missionaries serving as Regional Representatives in Western Africa.

To claim a day, or multiple days, write your name on the Missionary Calendar (located on the bulletin board across from the pastors´ offices) for the day or days you would like to support. Your donations, earmarked for the Missionary Calendar, of $25 per day support Willie and Anne's ministry and the work of the ELCA Global Mission. Find out more about Global Mission below.
