We will explore what it means to SHARE OUR GOSPEL STORY together by gathering online and learning how God is active in our lives, even when we don't realize it!   

And this is what sets our SOUL ON FIRE!




A first time donor and frequent MILAGRO supporters won the drawing for the handmade quilt and wall-hanging. Thanks to the “Quilters for Christ” from First United Lutheran Kennesaw for crafting such beautiful items to use in our give-away. Individuals had their names included in the drawing for every $100 donated. 
Congratulations to the following:
First place drawing: Mike and Marge Mynhier. The Mynhier’s are members of Lutheran Church of the Resurrection in Marietta, GA. They have been visiting ILAG for over a decade and have visited “at least eight times." Their first trip was to the ILAG community of La Israel. Lois Gilbert of First United Lutheran Kennesaw, who is also the quilt maker, was on the trip with them! Talk about full-circle!
Second place drawing: Ann Lindner of Atlanta. Ann has never been to visit ILAG and  is a first time donor to MILAGRO. She says, "From what my friend, Ginger Peterson Hippensteel tells me, the money will go to a great work.
Thank you for all you do."
Thanks to the Mike, Marge and Ann - and everyone - for participating in and supporting the Gala!

ALL TENNESSEE 2019 - November 9-10

Check out the pictures from 2019 All TN HERE

All TN 2019 took place at Trinity LC, Tullahoma, TN


122 youth and adults met November 10 & 11 at Trinity Lutheran Church in Hixson, Tennessee for All Tennessee.  During the event youth from across Tennessee gathered to learn more about the "GODISNOWHERE" theme by participating in different activities throughout Saturday afternoon.  Youth looked at where God was through an interactive Stations of the Cross activity, they also got to ask Pastor Ed Myers and Pastor Katherine Museus any question they wanted to ask, they learned about how we can be God's hands in the midst of disasters through the work of Lutheran Disaster Relief and put together hygiene kits for Lutheran World Relief.  To finish out their service that day they moved mulch on to the church's playground.  Worship started with a group of youth from Christ Kiswahili Lutheran Mission leading in song and during the confession participants were invited to take a piece of string to represent their confession and tie it on nails that formed "GODISNOWHERE" - a powerful way to see that God comes to us in the midst of our brokenness and as we communed together we saw God come once again in the body and blood of Christ. Special thanks to the volunteers of Trinity Lutheran Church for their hospitality and meals, as well as the ALL Tennessee planning team for their hard work putting it all together.
