“Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will repay him for his deed.” (Proverbs 19:17, ESV)
The time of isolation can and should be used to further diaconal ministry. In Sevastyanovo, Leningrad Oblast, Kaukola Congregation together with the ELCIR Diaconal Department have started work to open a Diaconal Center for the Priozersky District.
In our challenging times, the Church is planning to aid members of The Church of Ingria and other needy people by providing them with groceries, clothes, medicines, and other necessities. Yesterday, church workers freed up a room for storing clothes.
The ELCIR Diaconal Department would cordially appreciate a gift of home appliances, clothes or shoes in a good condition, groceries, money, kids’ clothes, kids’ learning games and home appliances for kids.
