This month we are highlighting the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML) grant of $100,000 for Christian Hope Through Mass Media in Egypt.
Lutheran Hour Ministries (LHM) has over sixty years of experience proclaiming the Gospel via mass media in the Middle East. Fortunately, the political climate in Egypt provides a new opportunity to expand ministry in the region. Other parts of the Middle East, however, are experiencing great turmoil with war. As a result, refugees, mainly women and children, are fleeing to safety. There is urgency to expand the proclamation of the Gospel throughout the Middle East, especially refugee camps in Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey.
LHM will reach families, refugees and citizens of the region through a new television program broadcast from Cairo, Egypt. This new television broadcast has the potential to reach millions of people throughout the Middle East—refugees and citizens alike—with the message of faith and the true love of Christ and to be a strong Christian voice and witness through Arabic satellite television programming.
Lutheran Women's Missionary League (LWML) is the official women’s auxiliary of the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. Since 1942, the LWML has focused on affirming each woman’s relationship with Christ, encouraging and equipping women to live out their Christian lives in active mission ministries and by supporting global missions. Saint John’s Mission Guild (LWML) meets the first Tuesday of each month at 7:00 PM in Room 301. All ladies of the congregation are invited to attend.
