St. James women make a world of difference

In observance of its 85th anniversary, Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS) World Relief has awarded the Rebecca Guild and Naomi Guild of St. James Lutheran Church, Howard Lake, its Making a World of Difference award Oct. 24 at St. James Lutheran Church.

The Rev. Michael Nirva, pastor of St. James, presented the award.

LCMS World Relief is presenting 85 awards celebrating the ministry's 85th anniversary. Award winners were selected from among the many nominations received from people and organizations within the LCMS.

The presentations to 85 individuals, groups, congregations or social ministry organizations, that have made significant contributions in responding to human need because of their work with LCMS World Relief, will be made in connection with LCMS World Relief Sunday, Nov. 21.

The actual award consists of a handsome bronze round medallion mounted on a wooden base. The medallion depicts the LCMS World Relief logo, the "Making a World of Difference" theme and anniversary years. A certificate naming the awardees and recognizing their faithful work and support of LCMS World Relief also accompanies each medallion.

LCMS World Relief traces its roots back to 1914, with the formation of the General Relief Board addressing the conditions during World War I. Today this ministry enables God's people to actively demonstrate His love, grace and compassion to people in need in the United States and internationally, by responding to their immediate needs and enabling them to become self-sufficient.
