Pastor Cain has been called to serve Redeemer Lutheran Church in Nacogdoches, TX. His last worship service at Gethsemane Lutheran will be Sunday, June 11th. Please join us for a reception following the 10:30 worship service to celebrate his 20 years of service at Gethsemane and his ongoing service to the Lord!
Sometime in July, 2017, they will participate in a mission trip to The House of the Lamb of God orphanage in Ouanaminthe, Haiti. They will be traveling with volunteers from Reedemer Lutheran Church of Salem, Oregon, who are partnering with "Nord Est Haiti Lutheran Mission".
Their mission is a sponsorship program to support the children of Haiti who have been born into a deprived economic and political environment. Through this sponsorship, aid will be provided for the physical and spiritual development of children to improve their abilities to serve God, family, and their community. This is an opportunity to serve God through serving others.
Jesus proclaimed, "I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine you did for me." (Matthew 25:40)
Pastor and Kathi will be working on a special mission project The total cost of sending Pastor and Kathi to Haiti will be around $4000. This includes airfare, transportation, and room and board for them at the orphanage in Haiti.
Past teams have put in gardens, built dormitories for the orphanage, and built school buildings.
Any funds raised above this amount will be used to purchase construction materials and miscellaneous supplies to help the orphanage and school. These are especially needed as the hurricane has caused a shortage of supplies. We will also use contributions to help support a week-long Vacation Bible School for 250 children..
But Jesus called them to him, saying, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God." (Luke 18:16)
