Supporting our Partners

God's blessings be with you this Lent. 

Last month, I traveled to the Philippines to assist with a regional consultation. The Lutheran Church in the Philippines and other churches throughout Southeast Asia gathered together to discuss the best ways to proclaim the Gospel. It became clear to me how much our role as missionaries is not so much direct proclamation of the Gospel, but providing tools and means for our partner churches to reach out into their own communities most effectively. 

Over the last few months, we have also started learning Mandarin. In her article, Eliza discusses how even though learning a language can make us feel like fools, God does not see us a fools but redeemed and forgiven children. 

AND, in case you missed is, there's a link below for a video I did with the kiddos earlier this month. Enjoy.

As always, thank you for your support.
