East Africa Mission Presentation by Delano and Linda Meyer

The Meyers will be at Zion Lutheran Church on Wednesday, December 13 to share their mission experiences.  You are invited to the Advent supper at 5:15 pm and to the Meyer presentation following the supper.  Advent Services will follow at 6:15 pm.

Delano and Linda Meyer have spent 17 years as LCMS missionaries in West African countries.  They are now responding to Lutheran Church requests for short-term mission work in East Africa.  The Meyers teach agricultural/family subjects from the scriptural perspective of stewardship. The Area Director of LCMS Missions in East Africa, has invited the Meyers to again serve as agricultural volunteers this coming January – March, 2018.  Agricultural training is likely in Uganda, Malawi and Kenya. So, this coming year the mission work will include and be a follow-up to the subjects of money management, soil fertility, soil and water conservation, and the Christian family.

Your prayers and financial gifts are requested in support of this mission work.  Please make out checks to LCMS and designate gifts for “Agricultural Consultancy in East Africa # 61007.  Your gifts will be sent to:
