Project: Chile Mission

In the past 4 years the Chilean church has almost doubled in size from 5 churches to 9. A new church plant in Santiago is currently building a sanctuary and working towards putting a school for people with disabilities on the same property. Santiago itself is a city of over 6 million people, and multiple other opportunities exist for planting even more churches there. More pastors are needed.

Project: Cayman Islands Mission

The work of showing Christ’s mercy, spreading the Gospel and planting churches in the Cayman Islands dates to the early 2000s for the LCMS. As of the summer of 2019, the congregation established on Grand Cayman island, Safe Harbour Lutheran Church, is being served by supply missionary pastors. Plans are underway to return a permanent missionary presence to the Caymans.

Project: Mercy House: Castillo Fuerte

Having been begun by previous missionaries to address the economic, educational and especially spiritual needs of the most needy in Lima, Castillo Fuerte is dedicated to aiding the communities around our mission sites in Word and deed while preaching the Good News of Salvation that Christ has so freely given us.

Project: Belize Mission

The Lutheran Church Missouri Synod has had presence in Belize since 2002 when short term teams blessed a small fishing village on the Placencia peninsula in Southern Belize. The Belize Mission Society formed around these short term teams and continued to serve this diverse area through school scholarships, Bible schools, nutrition programs and mercy outreach. In response to requests from the Belize Mission Society, LCMS missionaries established a permanent presence in the country in June 2016, first working with contacts and relationships established by the Belize Mission Society.

Project: Alliance Missionary Sergio Maita

The Lord has blessed our young, growing Dominican Republic Lutheran Mission (DRLM) with three congregations in the Santiago area, the country’s second largest city. In the past, the mission has had to juggle a schedule of often-traveling missionaries and guest pastors to lead Word and Sacrament ministry. We did not have a pastor dedicated to nurture these congregations through the preaching of the Gospel to an ever expanding circle of people.

Project: Good Shepherd Lutheran Homes

In the last 10 years HLBP has worked in three government wards, where intervention through visitation, staff training, working with leadership and advocating has led to two of these wards of 300 individuals being significantly changed.
