LUTHERAN FOUNDATION CANADA announces that “our own” James Krestick has been named Gift Coordinator for Lutheran Church—Canada’s East Region. (If you attended the Planned Giving Seminar here last spring, this is the role David Friesen carries out for Manitoba and Saskatchewan.) We thank God for opening this avenue for James to serve, and ask the Lord to bless the great work he’ll do!
