Lutheran Special Education Ministries:

Lutheran Special Education Ministries (LSEM) is very pleased to have been selected Mission of the Month for March 2017, and for St. Michael’s continued support of our ministry. Since 1873, LSEM has been a Christ-centered resource for children with learning needs, and our ministry continued to grow and change as quickly as the mission field upon which we serve.

Our ministry has seen explosive growth and change over the past 18 months. However, we’ve continued to REACH across the country to SERVE families and SUPPORT children with learning needs to know Jesus. I am so excited to report that through the hard work of our teachers and staff and through your constant prayers and financial support we have been able to increase the number of children we serve by almost 30%! God keeps opening door after door for us to be able to share His love with people near and far! Sometimes I am overwhelmed by how much He has placed before us and wonder if we can keep up with the amount of love He showers upon us. That’s when I remind myself how unique we are – we are an organization that has continually evolved and adapted to meet the needs of the communities in which we serve. 143 years later we are still committed to identifying the needs of students and meeting them where they are at, in schools where they are sheltered by the love of Jesus. I know that as long as we focus on His good and perfect plan we can’t go wrong.

Now is a great time to take this journey with us. We know you have a heart for kids, especially those with learning needs. The need for specialized instruction is only going to grow in the years to come and we stand ready to serve as experts in this field. We pray that you will continue to see the good work that God is doing through LSEM. We know that we couldn’t do any of this without you, so thank you for another amazing year! I can’t wait to see what He has waiting for us around the corner!

God’s Blessings,

Stacy Hoeft, CEO
