Mission Trip to El Salvador 2019

Last year, Transfiguration Lutheran Church Mission, and several Texas Lutheran churches brought hope and happiness to many poor families during Christmas time in El Salvador. We provided 1000 food baskets and toys for adults and children. In El Salvador, an average family is composed of five members. We helped to provide food for ten days, making a Christmas dinner possible for them. In total, we were able to feed 5000 people. Here is a video that shows the highlights of last year’s event.  Continue reading “Mission Trip to El Salvador 2019”

Dear Partners in Mission,

It is almost the end of the year 2018, and since we will be out of the DRC on December 13, traveling to the USA to participate in our daughter, Nicole Panzo’s, wedding, we wanted to say thank you to all of you for your prayers, donations of kindness and your thoughts that allowed us to survive on the ground. Also, we thank God, the sustainer and protector of our lives, He is the one who used each of you to be faithful and helpful in our mission in the DRC.

Update from NALC Ministry Partner – EEMN

A small team departed for Russia on October 24th, in order to lead an EEMN Friendship English Language School at the Lutheran Church in Kondopoga.  The 2016 Russin Yarovaya Law has significantly restricted the way churches and foreign missionaries may function in the Russian Federation.  However, the law does not forbid our activity, nor quench the thirst people have for the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  Continue reading “Update from NALC Ministry Partner – EEMN”

2018 Holiday Bed Delivery BLITZ – Bed Brigade

During this Advent season, as we anticipate the incarnation, Immanuel, God with us, we hear the admonition to be ready, to watch.  We will remember God’s preparation for His Son to enter our world through Mary, Joseph and John the Baptist who was preparing the way. We also remember their long journey as strangers in a strange land.  We remember the neglect of those around them forcing the Holy Family to a cow stall for Christ’s birth.  Continue reading “2018 Holiday Bed Delivery BLITZ – Bed Brigade”
