Directed gifts over and above regular benevolence are a special way for individuals and congregations to make a real and immediate difference in mission.
The Evangelical Lutheran Church in Papua New Guinea (ELC-PNG) operates schools in villages where "Tok Ples" languages are spoken. The church has been working on developing "Tok Ples" classroom materials. ELCIC funds enabled printing and distributing of these materials.
Not only will this help to preserve the "Tok Ples" languages, but it will make education accessible to children who don't know English.
