• Fuel For Faith

A proper balance of nutrients is critical for normal brain development. Help Cross-stitch provide the needed protein for our Orphan Homes and our schools in Peru. 

Fuel for Faith.

Cross-stitch is the members of the ELS being “stitched together” to support unbudgeted Home and Foreign Mission projects.

Missionaries along with the Board for World Outreach-BWO, (Pastor Tom Heyn, World Outreach Administer) and the Board for Home Outreach-BHO (Pastor Brad Kerkow, Evangelism Mission Counselor) contact the Cross-stitch Committee with suggestions and requests. The committee considers the needs described and the requests made, selects a range of home and foreign projects to sponsor and sets a monetary goal for the year.

Current Cross-stitch Projects

Cross-stitch “stitches together” donations from the many ELS Women’s Mission Societies and attempts to accomplish significant blessings among our mission affiliates worldwide. This year’s projects include:
