Sarah Kanoy and Stephanie Schulte are Lutheran Church- Missouri Synod Medical Missionaries, serving our Lord and His Church in Africa. These two amazing women shine like bright stars, pointing the way to Christ and sharing His great love with all whom they meet. LIMM is happy to announce that because of your donations, we are able to provide the funds for them to attend “The Christian Health Service Corps Global Heath and Tropical Medicine Overview 2018,” this June in Texas. If you would like to help us continue our support of Sarah, Stephanie and other medical missionaries who serve so tirelessly, visit our website (firstname.lastname@example.org) to donate. We cannot all be there in person to serve beside them, but we can be there in prayer and provision. We are all, each one of us, missionaries. If not, why are earth are we here?
LIMM is happy to introduce to you Jamielynn Tinkey and to share the good news that thanks to you, we are able to provide a $1500 travel grant so that she can be part of a Lutheran Church Missouri Synod Mercy Medical Team (MMT) this spring.
“My name is Jamielynn Tinkey, and I serve as a GEO Missionary to the Latin America and Caribbean Region of mission through the LCMS Office of International Ministry! I am 23 years old, a registered nurse and I currently serve on the regional team as the Human Care Coordinator for our missionaries and their families serving in 10 distinct countries across Latin America. I am delighted to be able to join the upcoming Mercy Medical Team to Tanzania and work alongside missionaries and team members to provide care, both physically and spiritually. Not only that, but my team throughout Latin America looks forward to working alongside LIMM and MMTs in the future. Because of this travel grant, I am able to make this trip, where I can put my skills to work as our team serves and learns together! Thank you, LIMM!!”
Sarah Kanoy is a friend of LIMM and of every one of you. Your donations in the past made it possible for Sarah, along with Stephanie Schulte and Molly Christensen, to complete Community Health Education “Train the Trainer” courses before heading to Africa. Next month the three of them will present a “Women’s Cycle of Life” Seminar in West Africa, providing much needed knowledge that will in turn be shared by those attending with many others.
We will be posting more from Sarah and Steph during the seminar, and wanted you to see the Thank You below. Sarah thanks you and so do we!

LIMM welcomes Drs. Joel and Scarlet Holcombe to our Board of Directors. Joel and Scarlet live in Tallahassee, FL. They actually met on a mission trip, and their love for short term missions has not decreased. Joel is an emergency medicine physician, working at Colquitt Regional Medical Center in Moultrie, Georgia. Scarlet is a PharmD, and has worked in various medical centers as a staff pharmacist, as well as Director of Pharmacy at Capitol Regional Medical Center in Tallahassee. They work with Medical Mission Teams, a non-profit medical mission group that they founded, and focus on short term mission trips, serving as mentors/preceptors to pharmacy students from Mercer University on trips to Kenya, Guatemala and Madagascar. Scarlet also serves on the admission committee of Mercer University Southern School of Pharmacy. They have served on too many short term trips to count (way over 50) to areas including Kenya, Tanzania, Madagascar, Indonesia, Myanmar, Belize, Nicaragua, Guatemala, and Honduras. We are honored to have them join us with their passion for missions and education, and look forward to their contributions to our future endeavors.
