Grace—Hmong outreach in Vietnam – Exciting updates! May 23, 2019
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
While you might have already heard this wonderful news at your home congregation or through the WELS "Together" e-newsletter, we have two very exciting updates regarding the "Grace—Hmong outreach in Vietnam" mission opportunity to share with you.
WELS President Mark Schroeder, World Missions Administrator Rev. Larry Schlomer, and Director of Missions Operations Mr. Sean Young returned from their trip to Hanoi, Vietnam, in April with exciting news to report: After surveying the land chosen for the theological education center, a memorandum of understanding was signed by WELS and Vietnamese Fellowship Church representatives confirming we can move forward with all land purchase, construction, and training plans!
Praise be to God! This is a huge step forward as we continue to train the leaders of the Hmong Fellowship Church in the truths of the gospel.
We are also pleased to report that the Holy Spirit has moved WELS members to offer our Savior more than $1 million toward the $2 million goal to fund the land purchase, building construction, and the first two years of operational costs for the theological education center in Hanoi, Vietnam. Thanks be to God!
Would you help us share this amazing news? If your church has already contributed to this mission effort, please express our heartfelt "thank you" to your fellow members and work with your pastor(s) and church leaders to update God's people on the blessings he's given us so far and the opportunities that remain. If your church hasn't yet participated in this amazing opportunity, please encourage your pastors(s) and church leaders to consider emphasizing the "Grace—Hmong outreach in Vietnam" opportunity in the coming weeks. We thank you in advance for your effort, prayers, and offerings, which are pleasing to our heavenly Father and vital to this effort!
Yours in Christ,
Pastor Larry Schlomer
WELS World Missions Administrator
Pastor Kurt Lueneburg
WELS Director of Christian Giving
