Seeds of Support: Donations Encouraged to Help Haiti, Other Global Emergencies

The latest earthquake and tropical storm to hit Haiti has dramatically affected the lives of Haitians in the south of the country. Other global emergencies are also immerging, especially as they pertain to the challenges faced by the people of Afghanistan.

Responses to support Haiti or other global disasters can be directed to St. Andrew Lutheran Church. Gifts given to St. Andrew with “Haiti Earthquake” listed on the memo line will be directed to Lutheran Disaster Response in Haiti. They will distribute emergency funds of food, temporary shelter, psychosocial care, water and sanitation, and created sustainable livelihoods through agriculture and livestock. Gifts given to St. Andrew with To address the needs of Afghani or other global needs, please list “Global Disaster Response”.

Our Mission

Seeds of Support Missions believes through listening and mutual cooperation we accompany our sister congregations and partners to develop a transformational, sustainable mission experience that contributes to the flourishing of God’s children and encourages the spiritual development of all involved.

Our Values

We accomplish our mission through five core values:

  • Practicing accompaniment
  • Listening to our partners with care
  • Striving for sustainability
  • Developing authentic relationships
  • Practicing ridiculous generosity

Current and Future Goals

Seeds of Support Missions began in 2010 to provide relief efforts after a significant earthquake struck Haiti.  In 2012 we established  a formal partnership with Redemption Lutheran Church in Jacmel, Haiti. The partnership has been fruitful on both sides and continues to this day. In addition to our presence in Haiti, we are currently exploring additional ways to experience and share God’s love through our unique vision. This may include partnering with external organizations, forming new relationships with sister congregations in other parts of the world, and offering transformational trip experiences for all participants.

For example, we are exploring a new mission partnership with the Iringa Diocese of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Tanzania through the Beka Kwa Beka (‘shoulder to shoulder’) mission of the St. Paul Area Synod. Additionally, St. Andrews March 2021 pilgrimage trip to Egypt and the Holy Land seeks to expand participants’ understanding of God’s work in that area of the world. We are also exploring the possibility of future mission opportunities for adults and families here in the United States. Seeds of Support Missions will continue to share details with the congregation on additional opportunities as they arise.
