Hands of Mercy, the newest e-newsletter from LCMS World Relief and Human Care (WR-HC), shares news and achievements from the 120 Lutheran social service agencies with Recognized Service Organization (RSO) status.
Offered three times each year, the e-newsletter also suggests resources for RSO leaders.
“RSOs often serve as the hands of Christ, offering His mercies to the homeless, persecuted, sick, and needy in neighborhoods across the nation,” said Barb Below, director of Social Ministry Organizations for LCMS WR-HC. “The service organizations we work with do great work in reaching out to those on the edges of society, in the dark corners of loneliness, or those too small or weak to fend for themselves.”
“In Hands of Mercy, we hear the stories of the great people who do this work, the people whose lives are changed by it, and the blessings that God provides,” Below said.
