Each November, the Friends of Lakota Youth Team distributes Wish List Letters from children who live on an Indian reservation in one of the ten poorest counties in our nation (Eagle Butte, SD). Last year members of Messiah and other local supporters fulfilled wish letters for hundreds of children!

Help us do it again! 

Will You Partner with Us and Reserve a Letter?  It is helpful and easy to do in advance by clicking the button below.

YES! I want to reserve a wish list letter! Click here.

Please note that these children are just like ours in many ways.  You may see a higher cost item on their list.  It is not necessary to purchase every item on the list.  Whatever you can provide will be greatly appreciated!


The dropsite  is located at 1015 Wolfrum Road, (the shopping center where Walgreen’s  and Mario’s Donuts are located) Weldon Spring, MO 63304  In the event you cannot make one of the times at this location, then as a second choice, you may drop your items at Messiah Lutheran Church,  5911 S. Highway 94, Weldon Spring, MO 63304 between the hours of 8:30 am to 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday.  In the event none of this works for you, please call either Jennifer Counts at 314-518-8562 or Nita Holt at 314-265-7860.
