We would love to get a survey in Minnesota North and North Dakota about the different kinds of “mission” support out there. In my own little circle I know of at least 7 different types of support from individuals and congregations. I would appreciate any one who does or is in a congregation that supports an individual or organization that is considered a “mission” to let me know at email@example.com.
About The Author
Rev. Bernhard Seter has been a Pastor in the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod for over 42 years. He served on the Board of LCMS World Relief and Human Care for ten years and is now the Chairman of the Board of International Missions. He has been privileged to travel around the world and see the churches' mercy work in action. He is convinced it is not only what we are "compelled" to do because of Christ; it is what we have been baptized for. Christ's love compels us, constrains us, and sends us forth.
