THE WESTERN CONFERENCE OF THE SLOVAK ZION SYNOD


The Western Conference of the Slovak Zion Synod had its annual fall meeting at Nativity Lutheran Church in Windsor Canada. Those of us attending were treated to a delicious totally homemade Slovak meal - - - noodles, sauerkraut and all are totally and regularly homemade by a dedicated small group of women from this church. They cook four days a week and then serve and package meals every Friday as an ongoing fund-raiser for the church. People in the community regularly take advantage of this great service.

At our meeting, it was agreed that this year's mission offering would be used to benefit the publication of Slova, a theological publication that is required of the seminary in Slovakia in order to keep its accreditation. This publication is sent to major universities in Europe and the USA. It is an important resource for any school having a curriculum in Slavic Studies.

Please use the designated mission envelope that was included in the September/October mailing. If you have misplaced the envelope, use one of the gold colored envelopes and mark it clearly for Western Conference Mission. Christ the King Sunday, November 25, is when the offering will officially be received.
