On recommendation of the Mission Board, the Board of Directors has voted to support Rev. Daniel Conrad, who is now serving in Mexico City, Mexico. Pastor Conrad is doing a similar job as Pastor Horn had in Papua New Guinea, serving as a theological educator who trains new Lutheran pastors in the area.
Pastor Conrad is married to Kathy, and they have a daughter named Ana, who is in high school.
Mexico recently experienced a devastating earthquake, which killed over 400 people. All of the missionary teams and members of Pastor Conrad’s church were safe, as well as the church buildings. Please pray for the pastors, vicars, and missionaries who are helping people affected by this tragedy.
Pastor Conrad puts out a missionary newsletter every other month. If you wish to be on his email list, please let Heather know. The newsletters will also be posted on the Mission Board in Boettcher Hall.
The LCMS has a sister synod in Mexico called The Lutheran Synod of Mexico. We have been in fellowship since 1968. The Lutheran Synod of Mexico has a membership of more than 1,000 baptized with 20 congregations and 12 pastors, lay preachers, and other staff. More pastors are needed in Mexico. Rev. Conrad is doing important work!
