You have been one of the Lutheran Association of Missionaries and Pilots' most faithful friends. Because of you, LAMP is thriving, reaching people of all ages in the North with the transforming message of the gospel.
There has been a baby boom in northern Canada. Thousands of children and youth need to be reached with the Gospel of Jesus Christ before this generation is lost. The need is urgent! If LAMP is unable to reach these children they likely will not receive any kind of organized Christian teaching and witness. Christ can transform nations, and we have an opportunity to bring hope and healing.
As we approach our 50th anniversary, God is calling us to practice good stewardship and respond to this growing need. With this in mind, LAMP has established a Legacy Fund to grow and sustain LAMP’s mission work for years to come.
One-time special gifts from donors will be invested with matching funding to provide for more volunteer missionaries, Pastors, and pilots to reach the current and next generation with the love of Christ. These one-time gifts are often from current savings, transfer on investments or retirement assets, sale of property, or designating LAMP in your Will or estate plans.
These gifts are a response to God’s blessing that brings us peace and joy knowing God is using us to bless others. Sometimes, it may an opportunity to remember or honor someone special in your life and a lovely way to say thank you and leave a lasting legacy.
Please pray asking God if He is asking you to plan to provide a special one-time gift to help LAMP bring God’s Grace to this and future generations of people living in the North.

"LAMP came to my community when I was just ten years old. I saw the dedication and love of the volunteer missionaries. The volunteers are a reflection of Jesus in the community, and we all have been blessed by their service.
We welcome the LAMP mission team as they pray, encourage and spend time with our children and our families. Our culture deeply values family and community. My family and our community are very grateful to LAMP for bringing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the North.
Please pray for our families in the North and how you might have a place in this ministry to bring the light of Christ to many for years to come."
