Blessed by Volunteers


We give thanks for our new Minnesota South District LCEF volunteer, Mrs. Marge Thiesse serving Martin Luther High School in Northrop, Minn. Marge may be new to sharing the LCEF story however she has many years of dedicated service at MLHS; Marge joined the school staff in 1995 as the development director.

Marge and her husband, Mick, farm outside of Ceylon in southern Minn. They have been blessed by three daughters and their families including two grandsons and five granddaughters!

Welcome Mr. Scott Harvey as the new Minnesota South District LCEF volunteer serving Our Savior Lutheran Church & School in Excelsior, Minn. Scott and his wife, Amber, have been Our Savior members for three years where Scott serves as the congregation treasurer. 

After the couple moved to the Excelsior area a few years ago, they visited Our Savior. Scott and Amber really appreciated hearing the strong focus on scripture and have been members ever since. Now they have been blessed with two children: a three year old daughter and a six month old son.

Scott graduated with an undergraduate degree in commercial aviation from the University of North Dakota, finished his MBA and now works in finance at Target Corp.
