We had a great Zion golf outing on Monday, August 29. God again blessed our annual golf outing with a beautiful summer day. We had a total of 56 golfers enjoying the day while raising funds in support of our Mission Jamaica partner. The 1st place winners of the golf scramble were a foursome of Cliff & Andy Eng, Rod Erickson, and Andy Tscholl. An interesting note was shared by Cliff Eng of the winning team. Cliff is from Cokato and has lived there for most of his adult life, but he grew up in Buffalo on a family farm. His family farm was the land that our church is now built upon.

The real winner is Mission Jamaica. A total of $4,645 was raised to help purchase building materials for a small house in Jamaica, which will be built for a family in great need of a better place to call home.

A little background on Mission Jamaica. Mission Jamaica provides various types of onsite support in many ways. Basic health exams and care is provided to the Jamaican people by teams of U.S. doctors, nurses, and laypeople that travel to Jamaica at their own expense and set up day clinics to examine and treat individuals in need of medical attention. Some volunteers can provide various types of help and support at an orphanage, while others provide labor to build one-room homes for Jamaicans who require this type of support. Through Mission Jamaica’s guidance churches around the country are encouraged to put together teams of individuals that travel to Jamaica to support these various ministries. Over the years Zion Lutheran has sent many of these teams to Jamaica. We are looking forward to sending more teams in the future.

Through our Zion Global Mission committee, we provide support to three primary mission partners: Mission Jamaica, All Kids Can Learn International, & Redeemer Lutheran Church. Each year the committee identifies a special need for one or more of the mission partners that the golf outing will support. Through the generous support of the golfers and the sponsors that help us with costs, we can provide financial support for our partners. God has truly provided us all with so much as we are all blessed to live in such a prosperous area. He calls us to share our gifts with others. Support of our mission partners is a wonderful blessing to us from God. Thank you.
