Missions News

God’s Call … Your Response

This Missions Conference week has been an exciting and dynamic time hearing from our partners in mission and the challenging message from Dr. Nik Ripken. God calls each of us to take part in spreading His message to all parts of the world because ‘Jesus is Worth It’. As we bring our Missions Conference to a close, here are practical ways you can respond to God’s call on your life.

Pray
 Finishing the task of taking the gospel to the whole world involves actively praying.
  • Pick up prayer cards from our missionaries’ tables as a reminder to pray for them.
  • Attend the new missions Prayer Time, beginning today at 4pm as we join together in praying for our ministry partners.
Become involved
The great commission was given to all of us. There are opportunities for each of us to spread the gospel:
  • Join the International Friendship Team working with refugees in Albany.
  • Volunteer at the Alpha Center, City Rescue Mission, Compassion-in-Action, Camp Pinnacle, the Gideon’s or other local ministries. 
  • Read Missions biographies, newsletters in the Missions Garden and on LCC missionaries’ websites.
  • Go on a Short-Term mission trip.
  • Go as God calls you to be a disciple whether it is as simple as crossing the street or ‘even to the ends of the earth’.
Give
Giving so that God’s servants can share God’s love throughout the world is the material expression of our spiritual commitment. Become an integral part of the work of those we support by sacrificially giving of what God has blessed you with. Many from our congregation have answered God’s call on their lives. It is our privilege to join with them through our financial support designated for ‘Missions’. For more information on how to give see the ‘Missions Giving at LCC’ brochure.

 

News from Sarah and Timur

Sarah has had some problems with her leg. Tests last week revealed that one of the main arteries of her leg which provides most of the blood supply to the lower leg is completely occluded a few inches above her knee. The good news is that the problem should not get any worse. Because this has been going on for years, the body compensated. God has given us the ability to grow new vessels in response to low blood flow. “We are grateful to the Lord for the test that went smoothly and the clear answer that we’ve gotten…We were able to squeeze into the November pre-field training and still hope to depart in late January or early February.”

 

Women with a Mission

There are five groups of women who meet during the first full week of the month (October – May) to provide encouragement to the missionaries of LCC through prayer, correspondence and material support. The time is spent in Bible study and prayer for both our missionaries and each other. We also learn the latest news from the mission fields where LCC missionaries serve. It is a privilege for us to support our missionaries around the world and we invite all women to join us.
