The Young Adults in Mission Program of the ELCA has just called the next YAGMs int service. There are 95 of them this program year, the program continues to grow - maybe in small part because of your gifts to our Mission Campaign that is giving money towards this program.
The YAGMs from our area are Krista Stanley from Luther Heights Bible Camp, University of Idaho Lutheran Campus Ministry and First Luheran Church - Idaho Falls, ID. She will serve in Central Europe, and you can reach her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our other YAGM is Katharine Jones, from Summit Church - Spokane, WA and Gonzaga University. She can be reached at email@example.com.
We wish them well, and ask that you keep them in your prayers.
