Scholarship funds for CHS deaconess students

In a word, wow! We extend heartfelt thanks to Deaconess Grace Rao, director of LCMS Deaconess Ministry, who recently delivered a $6,000 check from the LCMS Office of National Mission to Dr. Leopoldo A. Sánchez M., the Seminary’s Werner R.H. Krause and Elizabeth Ringger Krause Professor of Hispanic Ministries and director of the Center for Hispanic Studies. The funds are earmarked to provide scholarships this academic year and next year for deaconess students enrolled in the Center for Hispanic Studies Program.
As she presented the check, Rau noted that the scholarship funds have been made possible due to the “generosity of Lutheran brothers and sisters throughout the world.” Thanks be to the God for these wonderful friends and supporters!
