LCMS FOUNDATION One of your grandchildren has a special health condition. Is it right to apply more gifts to their situation out of your estate gift plan to address those needs going forward, long after the Lord has called you home? Yes, it is! If you struggle with this topic, you are still being bound by estate gifts as entitlement instead of grace. Our Transfer the Blessings Ministry director can help you answer your estate plan questions in person or by video conference. Contact Doug Taylor, at 407-365-3228 or dtaylor@sllcs.org
