Minute for Mission
“The situation in C.A.R. over the past three months is characterized by an improvement in the safety of our territory (the western region). It remains more or less stable between Bouar and the border with Cameroon.
“Following periods of crisis, we have utilized emergency relief funds from LPGM to support members of the Village Savings & Loan Associations. Many lives are improving and people are recovering because of the special outreach. By the grace of God, financial support from LPGM partners is very crucial to the ministry work we continue to do. Thank you for your continued reassurance by sharing the love of Christ.”

Two groups are traveling to India beginning July 25th & 26th, returning on August 10th. They will appreciate your prayers for good health and safe travels as they are immersed into a new culture. Prayers are also welcome for those they will be visiting – partner projects and program participants in the Arcot Lutheran Church in Tamil Nadu. Update August 11th … most of the travelers have returned home safely. Two remain in India and one went on to Tanzania. Praise God for their experiences!
You can follow one group here: Off Exploring: LPGM Travels (http://www NULL.offexploring NULL.com/lutheran-partners-travels)
The second group is blogging here: Travels with the Youth in India (http://www NULL.bethlehem-church NULL.org/)
Part of the LPGM mission is to raise the level of awareness of mission and inspire stewardship for ministry among individuals. The most powerful tool that we have discovered to accomplish this is to travel with people to visit our global partners – Argentina, Central African Republic, and India. We leave the typical tourist books behind and make a real connection to people. We share ideas and meals, we shop at their local markets and learn about their culture and traditions.
The short video gives you a glimpse into travel with LPGM.
The Church is the global body of Christ where everyone’s gifts and talents can be put to use. On LPGM trips you will walk hand in hand with local Christians doing God’s work, learning from them, supporting them and exploring what God is calling us to do together.
Contact Mary at the LPGM office to learn more about a trip to India in January 2015 or other opportunities that are being considered.
