Minute for Mission

20140526_115246Many times, we see God’s hand visibly at work – in a powerful thunderstorm or a colorful sunset. Yet many times God works so subtly that we scarcely take notice. This was the case when the car belonging to ALC Community College director, the Rev. Sebastian Simpson, needed attention. He did what any of us would do, he took it to a local repair shop. In his case, this was located in the southern Indian city of Cuddalore, in the state of Tamil Nadu. He was greeted with a surprise.

Minute for Mission

A group from Bethlehem Lutheran, Minneapolis, Minnesota, has been having a great time in Argentina. They made the journey to meet their partner church, Olaus Petri, located in Obera. Divided by miles and on the other side of the equator, Argentina Threethey quickly formed a new partnership! Along the way they have learned about the culture and cuisine of Argentina, too. Read some travel HIGHLIGHTS.

This photo was taken in Jorge’s garage … Jorge is second from the right in the back row. His garage is one of the “mission” sites of Olaus Petri as he hosts Bible study classes for the neighborhood children.

The congregation has had some struggles and challenges in the past four years but they are big on faith and have a very positive attitude toward their role in the Great Commission. They worship in a borrowed building and dream of having their own building someday.

We are eager to see what God has in store for these brothers and sisters in Christ. Thank you for your prayers on behalf of all partnerships that grow from a small seed planted by LPGM. Have you planted a seed lately?
