Monthly Missionary Moment

June 2022

Pastor Randy Heide is a Pastor Pilot for the Lutheran Association of Missionaries and Pilots (LAMP) organization. LAMP is a cross-cultural ministry sharing Jesus Christ with God's people in remote areas of Canada. Pastor Randy is married and lives in Warman, Saskatchewan. With fewer teams traveling to their northern communities this year due to remaining COVID restrictions, Pastor Randy is visiting sending congregations as well as contacts and leaders in the northern communities that LAMP serves.

Prayer requests:
*Pray for teams, that the Holy Spirit moves hearts and minds to once again serve our northern friends with the Gospel of hope.
*Pray for our communities that God would open doors and hearts to desire the peace, hope and love that comes through Jesus Christ alone.
*Pray for our ministry partners, both congregations and individual donors, that they would be motivated to continue supporting this work both financially and with their prayers.

Pastor Randy looks forward to meeting new friends in Fergus Falls when he comes to visit on June 2nd from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Plan now to join us!
