Jordyn’s CUW instructor Nicole Muth wrote the following in her letter of recommendation:

“As the daughter of  a Lutheran teacher and a graduate of Trinity Lutheran School and Sheboygan Area Lutheran School, Jordyn has seen the life-changing impact the Gospel of Jesus Christ has on students of Lutheran schools and their families. Through her clinical work and other urban experiences through Concordian’s Institute for City Education (ICE), she has witnessed first-hand the great need for impactful and compassionate educators for Lutheran urban schools. Jordyn has demonstrated servant leadership through her support of the faculty and staff in the School of Education and through her assistance in Milwaukee area Lutheran schools.

Jordyn exemplifies the LCEF mission through her commitment to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ to urban students and their families by being a Christ-centered servant partner of the LCMS in an urban Lutheran School.”

This month, we congratulate Aerwyn Debroux who received her South Wisconsin District 2014 LCEF Scholarship funds on Sunday, January 25, 2015 at her home congregation of Divine Redeemer in Hartland, Wisconsin.

“I believe that the work of Lutheran Church Extension Fund encompasses exactly what our purpose on this earth is for…spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ,” wrote Debroux in her application.

“Many lives are being changed by the organization, including those of the students who are able to attend newly built schools, members of congregations who have the opportunity to invest in new programs, and church workers who are provided with financial assistance to support their mission. In each of these cases, people are encouraged to grow in their faith and share it with others. Communities are significantly impacted when individuals come together with the purpose of sharing God’s love and building up the body of Christ, and it is with the help of organizations like the LCEF that this becomes possible.”
