Serving the World

Missionary Spotlight - May 2024

Anthony & Elysa Joseph

In May, the board of stewardship focused on missionaries Anthony and Elysa Joseph. The couple has previously been involved in campus ministry in Central Illinois but now is preparing to serve as missionaries in Western Asia. Due to the sensitive region they will be serving in, they cannot share extensive details.

However, we can share that for the next 1 to 2 years they will be doing ministry in a country with a population of over 10 million people — only 0.22% of them are evangelical Christians. Included in this population are over 150,000 university students. The Joseph’s campus ministry experience has helped prepare them to reach out to students in this new setting.

Thank you for your generous support of the Josephs during the month of May! Please continue to keep them in your prayers as they prepare to leave for their missionary assignment in August.

Quilting Group

Immanuel's quilting group meets the second Friday of the month at 9 am to work on quilts which are used to bless others around the world through Lutheran World Relief. Members also work on projects at home, making tops and backings that are assembled when they meet together. New faces are always welcome!
