As We Bring Love, Words, and Books…

Next week, Mike and I headed to the Dominican Republic for six days. We are so excited to be part of the Lutheran mission work in Latin America. As we prepare for the trip, I invite you to be part of the love and words we will bring to the missionaries serving 43 church plants across 14 countries.

Dr. Jeffery Oschwald, an expert on the books of Acts, and I will share God’s Word with the missionaries and their families. I will teach from my Bible studies (ShineFamily Trees & Olive BranchesInspired, and Love Rules). 

I would love for each missionary to leave this conference with a copy of these Bible studies.  As these missionaries build their theological libraries, my prayer is that these books will help them to share God’s love with families.

If you would like to help, please sponsor a book or books here. Please write a message on the form and I will add it to the book. I will post pictures of the pastors and deaconesses as I gift the books to them.

More than anything else, please pray for Mike and I as we travel and for these missionaries as the share real hope with the people of Latin America.

God bless each of you and thank you.
