Placing memorial stones by the River Jordan (Joshua 4:4-9).
After the Israelites crossed the River Jordan to enter the Promised Land, they set up a stone memorial so that future generations would know the goodness of God. In the same way, WELS Foundation exists to help members whose gifts leave a monument of their faith that will be a blessing for many years to come. By establishing a planned gift, you are creating a lasting legacy by providing financial resources dedicated to the support of teaching and preaching God's Word to future generations. As you contemplate the transition from the wilderness of life on earth to the Promised Land of heaven, what will be your memorial stone?
