Dear friends,
Greetings to you and yours.

If you have already made a gift toward the matching challenge, thank you. Through your generosity, you stand shoulder-to-shoulder with so many others who are working to end hunger and poverty around the world.

Dear friends,
In a year that presented significant challenges for so many, our church has been able to walk alongside our neighbors, participating creatively and courageously in the renewing work God is doing.

In 2017, gifts to ELCA World Hunger, our church’s ministry to end hunger and poverty, reached people in more than 60 countries, including the United States. From microloans to water wells, agricultural training to advocacy, more than 500 ELCA World Hunger-supported projects are making a difference in the lives of our neighbors around the world. And with your support, this life-changing work will continue in 2018.

Now, thanks to generous friends of ELCA World Hunger, we have a special opportunity to do more together.

Thank you,
The Rev. Daniel Rift
Director, ELCA World Hunger and Disaster Appeal
