Each year, Immanuel chooses a mission project with a world focus. In February 2017 we kicked off our support of Lutheran Bible Translators, and we are continuing our support through 2018. We are supporting this organization financially and with our prayers.
The Lutheran Bible Translators organization works around the world to make God's Word accessible to those who do not yet have it in the language of their hearts. Their vision is that God is transforming the lives of people around the world as they read and use His Word in their heart language.
We welcomed Rev. David Federwitz of Lutheran Bible Translators as our guest pastor the weekend of March 3rd and 4th. Rev. Federwitz serves as LBT's regional director for West Africa. He and his wife, Valerie, have served in Africa since 2003, and they have four children. The Federwitz family is currently on home assignment, and we enjoyed having him share with us his experiences serving with LBT.
