Summer 2018

The Rev. Gary Schulte, LCMS area director for West and Central Africa, helps American and Sierra Leonean medical workers carry boxes of supplies for the Mercy Medical Team clinic, which was held in Yardu, Sierra Leone, in May.

“From Fear to Hope” could be the theme for this entire issue. These are stories of God working through His Church — through YOU — to bring real hope to the inner city, after a disaster, in remote villages and through a man who remembers a child on a war-ravaged island 73 years ago. St. Paul writes about this hope: “[Christ] delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us. On him we have set our hope that he will deliver us again” (2 Cor. 1:10). Thank you for sharing the hope that is in you through your prayers, gifts and partnership!

In Christ,
Pamela J. Nielsen
Associate Executive Director, LCMS Communications
