“As we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith” (Gal. 6:10).
Members of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) continue to carry out St. Paul’s direction today in their own communities and around the world. The November issue highlights two examples:
- In Forest Lake, Minn., 50 teenagers from four different states came together to help residents with home repairs. This was just one of many LCMS Servant Events that took place throughout the United States in 2023.
- In Kenya, the LCMS works with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Kenya to operate Project 24, a program that provides shelter, food, and the opportunity to attend a local school and church to at-risk children. The issue features two women who benefited from the program and are now faithful Lutherans with the ability to support themselves in the future.
“I thought of … all the folks in North Dakota and beyond who have supported thousands of Kenyan young people who now enjoy much richer lives because of Christ and His love. Your support really has made a huge difference,” LCMS President Rev. Dr. Matthew C. Harrison writes in the issue.
