"Be strong and bold; have no fear or dread of them, because it is the Lord your God who goes with you; he will not fail you or forsake you.”


Deuteronomy 31:6

As we prepare for our Companion Relationship Trip to the Western Diocese Evangelical Lutheran Church in Southern Africa let us be mindful of the importance of building relationships that may "overwhelm the world." Let us prepare to walk humbly with our host congregations and families.

Let us continue to pray this prayer offered to us by Pastor Barb Girod, Holden Lutheran Parish, Wautoma, Wisconsin.

Lord God,

You have called your servants to ventures of which we cannot see the ending, by paths as yet untrodden, through perils unknown. Give us faith to go out with good courage, not knowing where we are going, but only that your hand is leading us and your love supporting us; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.
