Rasmussen Christmas greetings – Dec. 2013

Rasmussen family Christmas 2013

As the 2013 winds down, we are also SO thankful for supporters like you who allow us to train Africa’s mission and church leaders from the grassroots to PhD level.  We are also SO thankful for those contributing or giving scholarships so that our four children have received great education this year at Rosslyn Academy and Macalester College.

Hannah and Justin arrived from Minnesota this week!  Rachel and Isaac finished their finals. Fun to be together!

We send you wishes for a wonderful celebration of Christ’s birth and a Blessed and Blessing 2014.

Christmas gift opportunities – Dec. 2013

Looking for a unique Christmas gift for someone who has everything AND someone who doesn’t?

LVCC grads in Tanzania

Let us share with you a few of the fun giving/investments that our family has been doing for several years….
You are welcome to join us:

  1. Scholarships: $15 x 10 givers = $150 for a Tanzanian minister to study for an intensive term [$1200 for a whole diploma course - like those pictured above]

  2. Necessities for the most needy orphans and widows. Local Tanzanian churches give the most needy what is most needed whether that is food, job skills, school fees, etc. The churches have already carefully selected and sacrificed to help 106 widows and 114 orphans regularly. We get to add something to encourage them in this great work done sacrificially with close-up wisdom. [any amount]

  3. We have enjoyed contributing to the tuition of 9 of the regular LVCC teachers’ children for several year [any amount]

  4. Defending widows and others from persecution as suspected widows: $80 X 10 givers = $800 for each 3 day seminar for village government officials, health officers and church leaders
