LPGM started with a strong connection to the small, land locked country of the Central African Republic (C.A.R.). It is a tale of three Tims and of God’s glory in triumph over tragedy (see story below). The partnership with the Evangelical Lutheran Church of the Central African Republic continues to be very strong, despite the political and economic troubles in the country.
You may find the information on this link sobering: If it were my home (http://www NULL.ifitweremyhome NULL.com/compare/US/CF). We find the data unimaginable and we are called to do something about changing it. We hope you will join us in praying for God’s people in this special place. Current project information can be found on the sidebar. Perhaps you want to become a partner too!
Susan Smith is an ELCA missionary working in C.A.R. You can follow her work on her blog: Susan in the Central African Republic (http://susan-car NULL.blogspot NULL.com/).

LPGM has also been involved with projects in Tanzania and Madagascar. We are excited about a new partnership forging in Nigeria. Please see the sidebar for inspiring stories and examples of God’s blessings.
