The people of South Sudan and Ethiopia as the civil war continues to rage – and for the South Sudanese Christians who have been forced to flee to Ethiopia.

The children and staff at the Bethany-Good Shepherd Orphanage in Tanuku.  PLEASE prayerfully consider whether you could help with a donation for the orphanage.  

The members of the Lutheran Church in Gudipadu, Andhra Pradesh, rebuilt their church and are now worshiping in their new space.  Pastor Duggi is beginning a Lutheran School of Theology there. Support of all kinds is needed.  

Our nation and its leaders – for a return to God and the values on which this country was built.
