Monthly Missionary Moment for May 2018
Update on Rev. Daniel & Joan Jastram
While in the States for Home Service, Pastor Dan Jastram made 30 evening presentations, sharing about the work he and Joan are doing in Asia/Japan. He also preached in numerous locations for Sunday worship while here, including here at Trinity on Sunday, February 4. Using the Twin Cities for their home base, they drove west as far as the Black Hills, SD and then east as far as Birchwood, Wisconsin, to visit
congregations and individuals. While in the States, they were blessed with the arrival of two new grandchildren and were able to attend the baptism for both of them before they returned to Japan. Back in Tokyo, language studies resumed for Dan, as well as a trip to a sister seminary in India in March. Please keep the Jastram’s and their mission work in your prayers.
Monthly Missionary Moment for April 2018
Deaconess Kim Bueltmann - Serving the Lord in Germany
Trinity will be supporting Missionary Kim Bueltmann through the “Together in Mission” (T.I.M.) program for the next three years as she serves the Lord in Germany. Since 1982, congregations and groups of the LCMS have partnered with career and long-term missionaries serving around the world through T.I.M. The program has enabled congregations and groups to experience the joy of directly partnering with missionaries serving God in the greatest enterprise on the face of the earth — His mission. Kim’s role as a deaconess, she assists German congregations in providing outreach to refugees from the Middle East. She teaches these refugees and other new believers about the Christian faith and leads outreach activities. She helps the refugees learn German and provides them compassionate support and friendship. Kim also supervises GEO (globally engaged in outreach) missionaries serving in Germany.
Support Kim by:
- Pray regularly for her and our joint efforts in ministry.
- Invest financially as the Gospel is proclaimed by using our T.I.M. envelopes. There are four envelopes in your box of offering envelopes that are labeled T.I.M. Check should be payable “Trinity Lutheran Church.” All funds received in these envelopes will go directly to assist Kim.
- Offer hospitality when Kim is back in the states on home service.
- Develop a personal relationship with her through letters and emails.
