<![CDATA[OSLC Needs More Sponsors for our Children in Nicaragua...]]>Fri, 04 Jan 2019 15:25:36 GMThttp://oslc.com/news-feed/oslc-needs-more-sponsors-for-our-children-in-nicaragua

Our Savior Lutheran’s relationship with Compassion International in Nicaragua is growing.

In 2017, we built a Child Development Center (CDC) in Ometepe, and we found sponsors for all 164 children. Children at our CDC are supported by individual sponsors.

Last October, we sold pies to launch a Child Survival Program in Managua (CSP). The CSP focuses on infants and does not involve sponsorship.

Now, our 
first project, the Child Development Center in Ometepe, has expanded, and there are 55 new children available for sponsorship. If you missed out on the sponsorship drive in 2017, this might be your last chance to sponsor a child from our sister congregation in Ometepe. The new sponsorship packets are available in the church lobby until January 27.

<![CDATA[October Pie Sales // A Sweet Deal for Child Survival]]>Sun, 07 Oct 2018 07:00:00 GMThttp://oslc.com/news-feed/october-pie-sales-a-sweet-deal-for-child-survival
In February 2019, Our Savior Lutheran Church launched a Child Survival Program (CSP) in Managua with the help of Compassion International.

Our CSP will help babies reach their 1st birthday by providing life-saving services to pregnant moms. It will serve 15 babies and their mothers every year. The program provides everything the moms need before and after delivery in order to create a stable, healthy environment for babies. CSPs improve infant mortality rates dramatically.

We plan to sustain this new ministry with a new, holiday tradition -

Every Sunday in October, we will sell pies in the church lobby to get us through the holidays here in the States, and we will use the proceeds to support our Child Survival Program in Nicaragua. For the price of a few, holiday pies, we can give the best start in life to the developing world’s most vulnerable population. It’s a sweet deal! For more information, contact Tracy Schlatter.
