Melody Rose was the most recent birth at the Redeeming Life Outreach Ministries (RLOM) Maternity Home. We truly appreciate your prayers, and we hope you will rejoice with us.
Baby Melody was baptized into the family of Christ, surrounded by the supportive family of faith at the Lutheran Church of the Redeemer in Sanford, Florida, which offers a spiritual home for the residents, young and old. Melody's aunt, uncle, and little cousin came for the celebration and enjoyed a joyful reception.
RLOM staffers were proud to attend the annual Rose Dinner Gala in Washington, DC to celebrate LCMS's dedication to and participation in the 50th annual March for Life. Our Synod's efforts through Life Ministry to speak up for life have blessed Redeeming Life through its Million Dollar Life Match grants and the continued support of Deaconess Dr. Tiffany Manning and her wonderful staff.
The LCMS Million Dollar Life Match Grant program has encouraged many churches to begin or amplify their support for RLOM and other beginning-of-life ministries. Committed churches and circuits have held everything from door offerings to dinners and craft fairs to campaigns with baby bottles, all to invest in God's gift of life.
Thank you for your constant support for Redeeming Life Outreach Ministries both in Sanford, Florida, and the soon-to-open Illinois Expansion Campus in Dundee, Illinois. Your gifts enable these precious lives of moms and their babies to be brought into the Kingdom of God.
