The mission box, located on the counter in the inner Narthex of Faith, will have the offerings that are given there over the next few months donated to support missionary work to the Dominican Repblic. Rev. David Preus serves the Lord as a missionary through LC-MS in the Dominican Republic. In this role, David plants new churches in this country. He forms and develops groups of believers into mature, self-sustaining and self-replicating congregations through Word and Sacrament ministry. He also helps with theological education as needed and works with local deaconesses in their mercy care ministries.
Dominican Republic - LCMS Missionaries for a number of years has served this country. Many Dominican young people and adults have already been baptized and confirmed in this emerging Lutheran church body. One major task of the mission is to train local Dominicans to serve as lay leaders and pastors. Another emphasis is ministry to the people with developmental disabilities and their families.
Pray for the Preus family as they move to the Dominican Republic and begin serbving God's people. Let us give thanks to the Lord for the missionary teams answering the call to serve in the mission field.
