The fruit of Spreading the Gospel, Planting Lutheran Churches, and Showing Mercy in Mexico, dating back to 1940, is cause to celebrate God’s faithfulness. In 1968, the Lutheran Synod of Mexico (LSM) entered altar and pulpit fellowship with the LCMS; the relationship has only strengthened, particularly since 2013.
Mexico City’s Martin Luther Institute, a result of said relationship, collaborates with North American missionaries, Concordia the Reformer Seminary and Mercy Center in the Dominican Republic, and Luther Academy, a professional development initiative for pastors, on pastoral and diaconal formation. As a result, the Mexican pastorate, which formerly numbered three men, has multiplied and turned its attention toward church revitalization and sowing new congregations. A disaster response grant widened the scope of LCMS involvement in Mexico following a major earthquake; subsequent grants have further aided the Church in holistically caring for members.
Mexico’s proximity to – and shared border with – the United States positions it uniquely. Involvement from US partners is crucial, given countless connections in the borderland region and a constant exchange of people, ideas, and resources. Thanks be to God for past, present, and future growth!
