Lutherans in Africa!



Pr. Jonathan Fisk, in his unique and kinetic style, gives us the skinny about Lutherans in Africa, especially the work of the Rev. James May and his family, and how we can help - especially by providing hymnals to Lutheran pastors and congregations.

There are more Lutherans in Madagascar than there are in North America. Christianity (including Lutheran Christianity) is exploding in Africa. The newly-released French Lutheran hymnal from Canada is a wonderful resource for the large swath of Africa where the French language is still widely spoken.

Let us keep our African brethren in our prayers.

Concerning the hymnal support for Rev. May in Africa. Where/how exactly might one send financial support. I've been searching but must be missing an obvious address or something.

Thanks for any help,

Larry

Dear Larry:

According to Pr. Fisk and the websites listed from his YouTube video, here is how it works:

Send the checks to:

Bethlehem Lutheran Church
7500 State Road
Parma, OH 44134-6102

Notate that this is for Lutherans in Africa Hymnals.

I hope this helps!
