We spent yesterday evening with the saints of God at Victory in Christ Lutheran Church, Newark, TX. They provided us with an excellent meal of spaghetti and meatballs and brought someone to watch our little ones while I presented about what Lutheran mission work in Asia looks like.
Our conversation meandered through numerous topics, but we spent some time talking about how the Word of God and His grace now rains down upon us as a passing rain shower. We agreed that now is the time for The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod to go forth proclaiming the pure forgiving Word of God, and how the LCMS is in a unique position to help Lutheranism around the world.
The conversation delighted me, and I look forward to many more.
Thank you members of Victory in Christ Lutheran Church, Newark, Texas. May the Gospel continue to rain upon you as you delight and revel God's Word delivered to you in preaching and the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
