Abiding in Christ

Thanks to the partnership between GOOD NEWS and the VDMA Project, pastors and seminary students throughout the LAC region have been delighted to receive a new Spanish issue of GOOD NEWS magazine today.

“Abiding in Christ” (GN issue #25) is centered on Jesus’ words in John 15:5, 4: I am the vine; you are the branches. Abide in Me, and I in you. Focusing on this theme will help pastors and congregation members in their study of how God’s Word applies to their daily lives as they are branches attached to the vine – as they live as brothers and sisters in Christ – who together, abide in Christ.

Concordia Seminary Students Experience Missionary Life on the Field

In mid-January, a team from Concordia Seminary in St. Louis escaped the deep freeze of the mid-west for a week of mission education in the Dominican Republic, the hub of LCMS mission work in the Latin America and Caribbean region. The adventurous group included eight seminarians, a deaconess student, five spouses of students, and team leader, Tori Egger, the wife of Concordia Seminary President Thomas Egger. This trip offered students and spouses the chance to learn about the Synod’s work in Latin America, experience a taste of missionary life, interact with seminarians and faculty at Concordia the Reformer seminary, and share the Gospel with the Dominican people. They were not disappointed.

Good News for Advent!

Today the VDMA Project distributed two more electronic issues of Good News magazine in Spanish to pastors and seminary students across Latin America.

Letters to Lutheran Pastors in Latin America

This week the VDMA Project distributed 400 digital eBooks of the second of three volumes of Rev. Dr. Hermann Sasse’s Letters to Lutheran Pastors. For more than 30 years, Sasse corresponded with Lutheran pastors in Australia, the United States, and around the world. His collection of letters offers encouraging, instructive, and Christ-filled messages for pastors and seminary students on topics as varied as the Sacraments, Scripture, the Church, mission, church history, and ecumenical issues.

Teaching Law and Gospel

Lutheran pastors and seminary students working in the Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) region. A resource that helps teach the Biblical jewel of the distinction between, and the application of, Law and Gospel, will be invaluable to our LCMS mission work, as well as to our Lutheran partner churches throughout many LAC countries. We thank God for the generosity of the producers of Good News (Defiance, MO). They allow the VDMA Project to share electronic copies of their magazines within the LAC region at no cost to the recipients.
