Sharing the love of Jesus with children around the world through Christian education
Foro

Working Together for God's Kingdom
Earlier this fall, I attended a “Foro” (forum) in Honduras, where members of churches from Nicaragua, Guatemala, Belize, Canada, and the US gathered together to assist in the development of a new Lutheran church body in Honduras.  Before Christmas, I will head to Chile to participate in another Foro involving Lutheran groups in South America.

Foro is a public gathering in order to conduct business; however, a  foro  of Christian brothers and sisters coming together for the sake of the Gospel and building God’s kingdom is something special.  It echoes these verses from Hebrews 10: 23-25:
 
Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.    And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds,   not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. 
 
Reaffirming our unswerving hope in the truth of God’s Word,  encouraging and building each other up through Christian fellowship, and  prayerfully making plans so that our ministries can effectively reach the ears and hearts of those in our communities where we serve… those are the wonderful results that can come out of a Foro!

Pray that more and more of our churches, leaders, and organizations can continually meet in this spirit of working together so that our call to “go into all the world and make disciples” is fulfilled right before our eyes!

New Developments in Honduras
Tulio is an educational missionary now serving in Tegucigalpa. After studying for the pastoral ministry in Nicaragua, he realized his calling to serve the Church by overseeing an after school program for children around his own neighborhood.

The program is off to a great start. They have created a great learning environment from donated property, and Tulio is connecting with all of his neighbors and opening doors for many children to receive educational help... and hear the Good News of Jesus!
