On Sunday, January 8, Zion Lutheran School was presented with a check for $300,000.00 by Faithcare's Board of Education.  This gift was the result of a vision of a Lutheran couple, Mr. and Mrs. George Lange, who bequeathed their home and farm with the intention of building a Lutheran nursing home.  This became seed money to purchase an existing nursing home which was renamed the Manor Nursing home; located on South Eighth Street in Independence, KS and run by Southeast Kansas Lutherans.  Southeast Kansas Lutherans became Faithcare, Inc.  With the recent sale of the nursing home to Americare, the Board of Faithcare has taken action to dissolve Faithcare, Inc. and to distribute remaining assets in accord with its constitution and by-laws.
