For months our Lutheran mission congregation in Los Olivos, Peru was unable to meet for in-person worship, due to the lockdowns. On November 15th, they were finally able to gather together for the long-awaited dedication of a beautiful new worship facility and to celebrate the Sacrament of the Altar.
In August the congregation moved into the new worship facility, which affords space not only for worship but also for Bible studies, youth activities, dinners and other congregational events. Members put a great deal of effort into the cleaning, painting and preparation of the new building, which is within blocks of the old location.
We pray this building will be a blessing for the congregation as they gather to receive God’s Word and the Sacraments, to encourage one another, and to celebrate their life together in Christ.
