The Word of the Lord Endures Forever

The VDMA project is pleased to announce the first edition of a new daily devotion booklet in Spanish: La Palabra Del Señor Permanece Para Siempre, which means The Word of the Lord Endures Forever. The quarterly publication began in January 2023.

New Books for a New Year

Pastors and seminary students across the Latin America and Caribbean region have started the new year with two new eBooks provided by the VDMA Project. Both volumes contain study documents published by the LCMS Commission of Theology and Church Relations. The first book focuses on the Life of the Christian, while the second is about the Life of the Church.

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.

The first magazine, focusing on the topic of “Worship,” will be a great teaching tool as LAC congregations begin to receive and use their new Himario Luterano (Lutheran Hymnal).

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.

The Healing Medicine of God

Pastors and seminary students throughout the Latin America and Caribbean Region (LAC) are receiving a treat today in the form of a new Spanish translation of Good News magazine: The Healing Medicine of God for You. Distributed electronically by the VMDA Project, this magazine comes close on the heels of Your Good Shepherd, another new Spanish issue of Good News sent out earlier in September.

300+ Pastors and Seminarians Receive Good News

Suffering is a common theme in today’s world, whether it be in the church, in the community, in our own lives or that of our relatives. In the midst of suffering, conversation about situations can be difficult. Both church workers and caregivers need encouragement and reminders of how God is with us and cares for us.
