LLL Walks With ALWS and The Lutheran Community

LLL was proud to sponsor the Australian Lutheran World Service (ALWS) Walk My Way Ukraine event, and have a team walk for a worthy cause in an uplifting demonstration of our shared missional purpose.

LLL’s valued relationship with ALWS has seen us partner in many key initiatives, such as Walk My Way events around the country, with international aid programs – including farming partnerships in the East African nation of Burundi and micro-enterprises in impoverished regions of Nepal – and the ALWS Ambassador Bootcamp program to name a few.

This vital missional partnership is an excellent example of the deep connection LLL has enjoyed with the wider Lutheran community for over 100 years.

Our Board Chair Steven, Chief Relationship Officer Scott, Marketing Manager Rhianan, and LTM Tract Development Officer Anne walked shoulder-to-shoulder with over 870 participants in Brisbane to raise funds to aid families displaced by the conflict in Ukraine.

Seventy-four teams took part, including many from Lutheran congregations, schools, and care services.

LLL has shared valued relationships with ALWS, these organisations, and the Church and its districts, throughout our history and our commitment to maintaining this connection with fellow missionally-minded Lutheran entities remains at the core of our endeavours.  

Our tailored loans, sponsorships (like this one of ALWS), and Mission Outreach Grants continue to empower ALWS, congregations, schools, retirement and aged care facilities, and youth camps to build facilities for worship and learning, to inspire young people, and foster community and connection within the wider Lutheran family.

Teams from St Mark’s Lutheran Church, Dalby, and Lutheran Ormeau Rivers District School (LORDS) were among those to take part in Walk My Way Ukraine, which raised over $180,000.

LLL was delighted to award St Mark’s a Mission Outreach Grant that has made a significant impact on young people in Dalby and the Darling Downs region, with the grant helping the church hire an energetic Youth Ministry Coordinator.

LLL has enjoyed a strong relationship with LORDS for over a decade, with the most recent project including the construction of new junior school general learning areas to accommodate demand for high quality Lutheran education in the booming region.

ALWS, St Mark’s and LORDS are fine examples of the relationships that LLL is committed to maintaining and growing as we look to the future with renewed determination to continue our mission of stewardship and service.

If your school, aged care facility or congregation has a missional objective that could be achieved through a partnership with LLL, we invite conversations about loans and sponsorships via our website – www.lll.org.au, email – lll@lll.org.au or phone 1800 556 457, with Mission Outreach Grant applications available through LCA District offices.
