Our missionaries are on the move, spreading the Word into Costa Rica and Honduras.
From University to the Pulpit
Edmundo Retana came face–to–face with Lutheran theology at the University of Costa Rica and began to search for a Lutheran community that reflected his discovery. He found it. With the support of missionary Quintero, Retana applied to Iglesia Luterana Sínodo de Nicaragua for colloquy. He began studies in 2008. Rev. Edmundo Retana was ordained and received into the Iglesia Luterana Sínodo de Nicaragua (ILSN) May 23, 2009 and has been called to open a mission outpost in the community of Birrestio. This is a new outreach ministry. We pray for God's blessings.
Missionary Douglas Agular serves in the city Olanchito, Honduras and carries out an outreach ministry in surrounding villages. He thanks the Lutheran Women's Missionary League–Canada ABC District (LWMLC) for resources to purchase land for a worship centre. Agular spends his time on visitations, confirmation and Bible classes and, of course, worship.
Plans for Honduras
Our synod and the ILSN, in coordination with The Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod World Mission in Latin America, are developing mission–work plans for Tequagalpa, the capital city of Honduras. Pray for success.
