    Latin America Discipleship & Outreach (LADO) is celebrating its first annual benefit and silent auction on Saturday, April 25 at the Navilleton Activity Center in Floyds Knobs, Indiana. LADO is a nonprofit organization focusing its efforts on reaching out to displaced children and families in Colombia, South America. Edgar and Julie (Kiesler) Zuluaga, missionaries supported by LADO, have been working in Villa Katy, Colombia for three years. Because of violence and political turmoil, these families were forced to leave their homes, everything they owned, and flee to safety.  LADO’s dream is to restore them, bringing a message of hope, love, and a future.
    LADO wishes to educate and equip these adults with tools to help them sustain their families and provide them a better way of life. They want to buy a farm and build a multi-purpose ministry center in order to provide jobs, as well as skills training. Please join LADO for an awesome evening of fellowship and encouragement.
    Dinner tickets are on sale for $15.00/adults, $7.50/children 6-12, and 5/under are free. Doors open at 5 p.m. for the beginning of the silent auction and dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m. To purchase tickets, please call (502) 713-6005.
