Askins in Asia March and April 2019 Newsletter


Careful Caring

Greetings in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Wow! It's been way too long since I last wrote a newsletter. And, it's in the middle of April already. So, this newsletter combines March and April. In today's article, I talk about the Careful Caring done by LCMS missionaries in the Philippines. Eliza shares some of the thoughts swirling through our heads as we prepare to travel to the USA for home service.

For even more of those thoughts, watch this video. (And subscribe to the channel for more.)

As always, please download the newsletter, print, and distribute far and wide. If printing is not your thing, please forward this email to anyone who might be interested.

Thank you for your support.

— The Askins Family

Consider supporting the Askins in Asia as we proclaim the message of Christ and him crucified for the world. Through donors like you, the LCMS has sent us to do this work.

Mission Priority #2: Support and Expand Lutheran Theological Education

In this edition, we announce some wonderful family news. I also talk about theological education and why it's so important. 

Please share this newsletter however that you can. Pastors and secretaries, please print and hand out it out to those in the congregation who don't have email addresses and post it on your mission board. 

If you have any questions, please let me know. 

Thank you all for your generous support. 

Blessed Easter to you all, 

—the Askins

PS. If you know of anyone who's interested in doing an international Flat Stanley with us, send us an email. Eva Maria is enjoying the practice typing out letters.
