Our Synod has been in a companion ministry with the Lutheran Church of Honduras ( ICLH ) for more than a decade. Our partnership has made a difference in the lives of those who share in this faith journey. In gratitude for our relationship, we will be praying for the 12 faith communities in Honduras on October 8, while they are praying for our congregations. We have been invited to pray for the healing ministries of the Salud Para La Vida program( Health for Life ) as it touches the lives of the poorest of the poor in underserved neighborhoods, for the water filter program, for kindergarten nutrition programs, and for the spiritual renewal of those who participate in these ministries.
The designated prayer of the day leads us forward in mission. Beloved God, from you come all things that are good. Lead us by the inspiration of your Spirit to know those things that are right, and by your merciful guidance, help us to do them, through Jesus Christ,our Savior and Lord. Amen.
Consider singing the hymn “ Oh,Sing to the Lord ” #822 in the Red Hymnal, and reading the Lord’s Prayer in Spanish.
While the Honduran church leaders were visiting the Mitten Synod, Pastor Rolando shared an inspirational message.
