St. John's Mission Update
This year, the children of St. John's are using their gifts to the Branch Lutheran Schools of Haiti to help provide Christian educational opportunities Haiti. Haiti is an extremely impoverished country. At Branch Schools, the children hear the Word of God in their classrooms every day and learn of the amazing love and salvation found in Jesus. They memorize the 10 Commandments, Apostles Creed, Lord's Prayer, and more as they dive into a thorough study of the Bible's teachings.
