Project: Cuba Mission

Cuba’s ranking as the largest Caribbean island positions it firmly within the scope of Latin America & the Caribbean Region. The LCMS first established itself on the Isle of Pines, known today as the Isle of Youth, 31 miles south of the Cuban mainland, in 1911.

Project: Sri Lanka Mission

The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod’s (LCMS) church body partner in Sri Lanka, the Ceylon Evangelical Lutheran Church (CELC), needs funding to support, maintain and grow its ministry presence in this South Asian island nation of mostly Buddhists and Hindus. There are currently some 15 worshiping Lutheran congregations and mission stations with more than 600 members. Four ordained pastors and five evangelists serve this faith community through preaching, teaching and outreach. Lutheran churches and mission stations are located around the island. The CELC longs to reach more people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Project: Seminary Symposium

Concordia the Reformer Seminary and Mercy Center (CMSCR) in Palmar Arriba, Dominican Republic boasts a curriculum grounded in practical field experience that supplements the requisite doctrinal foundation. The ripples of what God will do through its graduates reach far beyond classrooms overlooking palm tree covered mountains and occasionally serenaded by neighbors’ merengue; CMSCR’s sweeping influence is perhaps most evident in the one-of-a-kind, Spanish language theological symposium that is a cornerstone of every academic calendar.
