Please pray that those seeking refuge in Germany, may discover the ultimate, true and lasting refuge, which is in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Rev. Dr. Charles and Connie Cortright and Rev. Dr. John and Melinda Bombaro are working in partnership with the Riga Luther Academy in Latvia to launch the Livonian Lutheran Project which will provide an online, bachelor’s level curriculum of confessional Lutheran theology in English.
Please pray for this project so that it forges a path to ordination into the office of holy ministry for men in mission fields where it is not possible to establish their own seminary.
Pray for the good news about Jesus to spread among the Czech people and for our missionaries as they share the Gospel in central Europe.
It is truly good, right and salutary that we should at all times and in all places give thanks to the Lord!
“Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth!
Serve the Lord with gladness!
Come into his presence with singing!” (Ps. 100:1–2)
It’s a culinary tour from west to east! Whet your appetite for more than just adventure as you are introduced to staple ingredients and dishes that might grace your Africa missionaries’ tables. You can almost smell the fufu and sauce…
Pray that the Giver of all good things would continue to provide for the physical needs of the people of Africa, even as He uses our missionaries to provide for their spiritual needs.
Rejoice with Paul as he writes, “Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Phil. 2:9–11).
Ask the Lord for protection for everyone traveling throughout Africa, whether by bus or car, motorcycle or bicycle, or simply by foot.
Give thanks to the Lord for the way the diversity displayed across cultures reflects His incredible creativity.
Support the work of spreading the Gospel, planting Lutheran churches and showing mercy in Africa by providing a gift where it is most needed. Recent gifts have made it possible for French-speaking men from Benin, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Guinea, Ivory Coast and Togo to bring their families with them as they study to become pastors at the Lutheran seminary in Dapaong, Togo. Other gifts have provided scholarships for women to train to become deaconesses at the Lutheran seminary in Kenya.

“Jesus said to them, ‘I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst’” (John 6:35).
