Lutherans In Medical Missions
Working with local and global partners to share Christ’s healing in medically underserved communities.
When Moses hands grew tired…. Aaron and Hur held his hands up-one on one side, one on the other-so that his hands remained steady till sunset. Exodus 17:12
Partnerships! When workers in the harvest labor side by side, the harvest is greater and the laborers refreshed. LIMM is blessed with many partners, but none more important than each of you. Without you beside us, holding us in prayer and supporting us financially, we would not be able to join with others, both at home and abroad. What has your partnership made possible?
Already this year:
You have made it possible to give $2,500 to help those heeding the call to serve on LCMS Mercy Medical Teams (MMT). Nurse Molly Christensen will soon be heading to Madagascar. Others will follow.
In 2015 you met Parish Nurse Ellie Natera, from Papua New Guinea, and gave her the opportunity to take part in the Lutheran Parish Nurse International (LPNI) Study Tour in New Zealand. There she worshipped, learned and shared with peers from across the world. In January you sent over $500 for repair of the First Aid Station from which Ellie serves. This year Tantley Andriatahiananirina, of Madagascar, will take part in the tour; all because of you.
Because of you, we will partner with LCMS National and International Missions, to begin planning a community health education workshop in Togo; an answer to the prayers of missionary Valerie Stonebreaker and many others. We were able to give RN Sarah Kanoy the funds to equip her medical supply bag for use in her missionary work in East Africa. Remember Sarah? You sent her and Steph Schulte, RN to a health education training workshop last year. Steph and her husband, Rev. Gary Schulte, will soon be heading to West Africa, where they will serve our Lord by selflessly serving others.
Here at home:
On March 12, you helped LIMM, together with Christian Friends of New Americans (CFNA) Concordia Lutheran Church, Kirkwood, Missouri and LCMS MMT, present an interactive workshop, sharing how to reach out and walk beside New Americans, helping all to live in wellness and at peace with God.
In August, your support has made it possible for LIMM to join with LCMS National Missions and MMT, taking part in MMT’s first domestic team in Philadelphia, where the LCMS has recently placed its first “at home” missionaries.
Thanks to you, in partnership with LCMS National Missions and Jesus our Savior Lutheran School, exciting opportunities are beginning to take shape on the Winnebago Indian Reservation in Nebraska.
Do you see how important you are to us? Without you none of the above would have been possible. Without you future opportunities to serve will not happen. Without you there is no LIMM. Please remember us in your prayers and with your tithes. The harvest is white!
