Concordia Ladies Association (CLA) of Cottage Hills, IL, shared images and details of their mission projects accomplished during February 2020. They were busy sharing the love of Jesus with others through the month. Some of their projects were:
- Partnering with Congressman John Shimkus "Valentines for Heroes" program. A total of 198 Valentines were purchased or handmade by the ladies of CLA and volunteers. These valentines were delivered to the Congressman office to be distributed to veterans and active duty military men and women in our area.
- Gift baskets were filled with snacks, treats, and homemade valentines and hand delivered to area shut-in members.
- Items collected and shipped to an 11-year old girl in PA, who is suffering from multi-organ rejection.
- CLA sponsored a food and paper product collection through Thrivent Action Team funds and private donations for Concordia Seminary's Food Bank. CLA has planned a Food Bank tour in late March.
We give thanks to God for these opporltunities to bless others and for the many hands in our church family - young people, men and women - who helped our group's efforts! Peace and blessings, Lisa Gray, President

They told of one of their recent mission trips, as well as the activities of the OACF. Another highlight was using a grant obtained from Thrivent Action Team for $250.00 to assemble gift bags. The money was used to purchase small personal care items for gift bags, which will be given to residents at the Call For Help Inc. Center in East St. Louis. James Kellermann, advocate for the center, told the group what kinds of services were available to the public at the center. 53 gift bags were made.
