“God has blessed Abigail with intelligence and gifts of service as well as a strong faith,” said Carole White, Lutheran Church Extension Fund District Vice President – Iowa East and West.
Abigail Mullen received her $1,000 LCEF Iowa District West scholarship at her home congregation Faith Lutheran Church, Adel, Iowa, on Sunday, December 30, 2018.
Mullen graduated from Adel Desoto Minburn (ADM) High School last spring. The daughter of Gary and Laurie Mullen, Abigail is attending Concordia University Nebraska, Seward.
“While she is a multi-talented student, it is her humility and character that make Abby such a likeable person.” – ADM H.S. Language Arts Teacher Jacqueline Seidl
In his letter of recommendation, Rev. John Burger wrote, “…[Abigail] is a vital member of Faith Lutheran Church…. she is truly a leader among her peers.” Burger explained how Abigail was not only faithful in worship attendance but also displayed a servant’s heart by running the church audio/visual equipment, helping with their Wednesday evening family education programming for children and more.
In her scholarship essay, Mullen wrote, “What I like about LCEF’s mission is that it is Christ centered. We live in a very “me” centered world, so it is such a blessing to have an organization that provides funds and services with Jesus in mind. The churches and schools that benefit financially from LCEF have the opportunity to further the Kingdom of God through the people they touch. It is fulfilling the Great Commission as Jesus commanded.”
