On behalf of Lutheran Social Services and St. John’s Lutheran Ministries, we sincerely thank you for your donation.  You can be assured that your gift to LSS will be used to bring hope and support to people all across Montana.

Last year, we met with 63 women who were struggling with the grief and fear of an unplanned pregnancy.  Of that number, 25 women have placed their children with adoptive families so far, and several more are currently working with our counselors, intent on making the best decision possible for themselves and their unborn babies.

With offices in Billings, Bozeman, Missoula, Kalispell and Great Falls, we have a lot of territory to cover, and one of our greatest expenses is the travel involved in meeting our birth parents where they live.  Our counselors think nothing of making a 200 mile trip to visit with a frightened young woman in a far-flung corner of Montana, and whatever the outcome of those meetings, we feel good knowing that we were there to offer assurance, advice, and emotional support.

As long as we have friends like you supporting our work, we will continue to bring this ministry of hope to those in need.  Thank you so much for thinking of us.
