					   Mission: To grow a family in Christ by connecting people to the power of God’s love.
   Vision: To be a fully functioning community of faith where God’s love and transforming power are lived out
   in the world.
                                                                                    August 1, 2010

                           9th Annual Charity Golf Classic
                                       Saturday August 28

Since its inception the Classic has raised more than $90,000 to enable our congregation to conduct its
Outreach Ministry which serves thousands of people in our own community, throughout our country, and
in our partner communities in Tanzania. The sponsorships and auction items account for the major
portion of our proceeds and the continuing success of the Classic is because members contribute unique
and special items or one of a kind experiences to our silent auction. There are also opportunities to
become sponsors as well as to join us golfing that day.

Please consider becoming a sponsor or donating an auction item. For example, members have donated
visiting the television studio to see how the weather portion of the newscast is produced, a flight over
Milwaukee, a golf and theatre package, a round of golf at a private country club, a condo vacation, help
with college essays, crafts, art work, etc. Let your imagination go wild. Please don’t hesitate to contact
Linda Cole in the church office (414) 352-8990 or David Romoser (262) 241-5298 for more information,
to offer a donation or try an idea on for size.

Dear Fellow Members of Fox Point Lutheran Church:
We are blessed to have two nurses (Joni Ledzian RN and Kaela Buraczewski RN) and four physicians (Mark
Chelmowski MD, Jeff Garland MD, Harlan Stueven MD and Paul Werner MD) who will be representing Fox
Point Lutheran this Fall as members of the 2010 Tanzanian Mission Trip. Additionally several others of the
group will serve as medical and nursing assistants.
Currently, we are exploring two main medical service opportunities including educational seminars and direct
care clinics.
Some of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality include: neonatal airway disease, respiratory disease in
children, traumatic death in youth and early adult, vascular disease and its contributors, hypertension and
diabetes in adults.
We are anticipating finding patients with acute diseases and self limited medication needs and some with
chronic disease needing ongoing medications. Fortunately, generic medication for treatment of some of these
conditions is comparatively inexpensive. There are few supplies available for such clinics. We will purchase
some supplies/medications in Tanzania. Much of the equipment there is limited and or outdated. We will
need to bring some equipment with us. Between 1,000 and 1,500 patients are expected to be seen over the five
day clinics to be held in Usa River and Ngarenanyuki. The estimated cost to purchase medicine, supplies, and
equipment to serve and help the people of Tanzania is approximately $2,500.
Would you consider financially supporting the purchase of medications, supplies and limited equipment
your medical team will need?
We appreciate your thoughtful consideration of our request for help in accomplishing our mission…checks can
be made out to Fox Point Lutheran Church…please write Medical Mission in the Memo section of your check.

Your contribution will pay for, but not be limited to, medications for selected acute and chronic conditions,
diabetic or urine testing strips, gloves (sterile and non sterile), a limited array of minor surgical equipment and
supplies, BP cuffs and stethoscopes that we will use for screening and then donate to the doctors at Nkoranga
Hospital and local dispensaries, etc.
We will be prudent with every dollar you can share for this cause. If we are blessed with more than we need
we will create a trust fund, for purchase of ongoing medications.
Thank you in advance for your spiritual and financial support.
Scripture tells us “that every person living in want is an opportunity to love and serve God.”
Mungu aba bariki, [God bless You]
Your FPLC 2010 Tanzanian Medical Mission Team.

                                           We Need Your Help

Please take a moment to say a prayer for the servicemen and women on our prayer list. Of all of the gifts that
you could give, prayer is the very best one.

Our military prayer list for several months has included Sean Heidgerken, a Davenport, Iowa, junior high and
high school friend of FPLC member Sara Strunk. Sean is serving in the US Army in Iraq. He is a member of
the 1st Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division.

Sara commented that Sean made a specific point to come to their 20-year high school reunion last year in
Davenport, just weeks before his deployment. Sean and Sara had reconnected via Facebook. Sara said that
Sean appreciates all of our prayers and kind thoughts. God bless you, Sean! We continue to pray for your safe
