Christ’s mercy is at the heart of this issue of Lutherans Engage the World. Having received Christ’s divine mercy, we share it with others. Through your prayers, efforts and financial gifts, this mercy is extended in Kenyan refugee camps, among immigrant communities and where people struggle after a disaster strikes. The LCMS is in all these places with God’s saving Word and acts of mercy, changing lives now and for eternity. In Christ, Pamela J. Nielsen Associate Executive Director, LCMS Communications
