**Lutheran Association of Missionaries and Pilots (LAMP) mission teams to Norway House and Shamattawa, Manitoba are finishing plans for departure in late July. This is the first summer trip since summer 2019.
Thank you for the financial support of these teams, as well as your prayer support for safety in travel and that the light of Christ will pierce the darkness as the Gospel is proclaimed to children and adults. We are thankful that God has called more volunteers to join our teams. To God be the glory!
