Hope’s World Mission Focus

Hope is serious about world missions. Many people groups have never heard about Jesus, and some may never get a chance if a missionary is not sent into their community to share God’s Word with them.

Hope is involved in two world mission initiatives. One through the Church of the Lutheran Brethren in Chad and the other through Borderlees Missions Bonfil, Mexico.

Chad, Africa

Hope has partnered with Lutheran Brethren International Mission to adopt a people group in Chad, Africa (name of people group is removed online for the safety of our missionaries). Along with Swan Lake Church & Bethel Church in Fergus Falls, MN, Hope has called and sent Nathanael and Carrie to this people group (last name removed online for their safety).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bagirmi Bible Project

Nathanael is working on illustrated books of the Bible in the native language of the people group to whom they are ministering.  This is part of a combined effort to teach them in their written language (and how to read it) while sharing the Gospel with them.  Below is some of the artwork from the book of Genesis.
