2020 Annual Activity Report-Life Ministry Coordinators
"Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through Him we have also obtained access by faith into the grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory God. Not only that, be we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us." (ESV, Romans 5:1-5)
 
When you were filling out your 2019 (AAR) Annual Activity Report for Lutherans for Life, could you have had any idea what struggles lay ahead in the 2020 year? If you turned in your report by the March 31, 2020 due date, the world was only in the first stages of being turned upside down by the Corona Virus and Covid-19. It's now approximately 12-months later. I pray the suffering that you have endured strengthened your character and that your character has produced the hope that does not shame you but fills you with the promise of the Holy Spirit and life!

We know the past year has been difficult. We invite you to share with us what you were able to accomplish in the life arena. Please don't feel discouraged if you were unable to do any projects at all. Our Lord of Life is here to encourage and support you in the months ahead!  Lutherans For Life is here to do the same. Fill out this 2020 - AAR to the best of your ability and then look forward with prayer and anticipation to the coming year of Life opportunities!

Please use this 2020 Annual Activity Report to reflect on your suffering of 2020, but even more importantly, your hope in the glory of God! How have you endured with character to bring hope in Christ to life issues in 2020? Where were you challenged and what are the ways you rose up to meet those challenges and remain 'Gospel-motivated voices for Life' at home, in your church, and in your community in 2020? We love your stories, and appreciate with them your pictures of what Life Ministry in 2020 looked like for you.
 

 
The hope of Christ's love poured out upon the world at the cross remain yours throughout 2021!
