PRAY FOR OUR MISSIONARIES: This morning we pray especially for those serving our Lord in Haiti. The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod began work in Haiti in 1978 when LCMS mission societies began assisting Lutherans in Haiti. In 1987, the LCMS began supporting mercy work in Haiti with a grant that aided a children’s feeding project. Since then, grants have assisted in funding schools and children’s programs, health care and food assistance efforts, livestock and irrigation projects, literacy and job skills training, and disaster response. In Jan. 2010, a 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck Haiti. More than 200,000 people lost their lives and damages were widespread. The LCMS, the Dominican Republic Lutheran Mission and dozens of other Lutheran organizations provided food, water, tents, medical supplies, hygiene items and spiritual support to the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Haiti (ELCH) and Lutheran Church of Haiti (LCH). At the LCMS Convention in 2001, delegates voted unanimously to “formalize altar and pulpit fellowship” with the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Haiti (ELCH) — making it a sister/partner church. In addition to earthquake relief, the ELCH continues its focus on evangelism, church planting, leadership training, church building, education, radio and TV ministry, health care and agriculture. It operates one seminary. May God continue to bless the work of His people in Haiti!
