Spring is here

Posted on February 15, 2010 by Global Mission Support

The Spring 2010 issue of the Hand in Hand newsletter is off press and online.   Request copies of the one-page newsletter to distribute in your congregation, at synod assemblies, and for other events (globalmissionsupport@elca.org, 800-638-3522, ext. 2657).  Two of the articles are available in reproducible formats to share in Sunday bulletins and newsletters; find them at www.elca.org/handinhand.  

In this issue

  • ELCA missionary Patricia Bentsen offers a devotion on Matthew 25:36 that lifts up the Tsiafahy prison ministry in Madagascar (available as a bulletin insert).
  • Questions such as “How is ELCA Global Mission funded?” and “When will the new Global Mission Annual be available?” are answered in “101 long-term missionaries and other answers” (available as a bulletin insert).
  • In her director’s column, the Rev. Twila Schock highlights ELCA missionary the Rev. John Lunn and his medical ministries in Liberia and Southern India.

Coming up 

The Summer 2010 issue of the Hand in Hand newsletter is scheduled to be “in hand” on April 24.
