The annual Spring LWML Salad Luncheon will be on Saturday, May 2nd! Former Trinity Sunday School teachers will be especially interested in our guest speaker. This year Circle 4 has asked Jennifer (Gerhardson) Wood, Tami and Jerald Gerhardson’s daughter, to be our speaker. Jennifer and Ben, her husband, and their four children, ages 12, 10, 9, and 6, are moving to Chaing Mai, Thailand this summer where they will be joining the ministries of ZOE International and Grace International School. ZOE’s mission is to rescue and care of orphans in danger and children who are sold or at risk of being sold into human trafficking. Grace International School serves over 300 missionary families from 21 nations. Their vision is to be a part of God’s work to bring God’s Word to people all over the world so that precious souls may possess eternal life through Jesus Christ, our Savior. Thialand is only 1% Christian.

Pastor John Christensen will be installed as the new Pastor at Trinity Lutheran Church, Fergus Falls, MN on Sunday, April 26 at 4:00 pm. We will still have our regular 9:00 am Sunday morning worship on that day as well. The installation service will be followed by a meal, program, and time for fellowship. This will be a wonderful time to meet Pastor Christensen and Diane, his wife, and to welcome them to Trinity Lutheran Church and Fergus Falls, MN.
Sunday, April 12th Rev. Dr. Daniel Jastram will be our special guest and will preach the sermon during the 9:00 am worship service and will make a mission presentation during the 10:30 am Bible Study hour. Rev. Jastram has accepted a call from the LCMS Foreign Mission Board to teach at the Tokyo, Japan Lutheran seminary and to coordinate theological education opportunities and also to evaluate theological educators throughout many bases in northern Asia. Rev. Jastram was born in Shibata, Japan and spent his youth until college age, in Shibata and Tokyo. He was a professor at Concordia, St. Paul, and Concordia, Milwaukee, served as sole pastor at Messiah Lutheran Church in Forest Lake and has been chairman of the Concordia University Systems. His wife, Dr. Joan Jastram was born in Mitchell, SD, educated at the University of S.D. and Argosy University, Twin Cities and worked as a clinical psychologist. She plans to continue in this capacity in Tokyo. They are selling their home and many of their possessions in preparation for moving to Japan and upon request from the Mission Board are presenting to the churches an outline of the opportunities that await them in this area of work and the need for funds to support this work. This opportunity of bringing the Word of Life to this part of the world, that in many of the areas has less than 1% Christians, is vital and in need of our prayers and our support. The Global Outreach Board will be serving refreshments following the worship service today.
All LCMS missionaries are responsible to do their own fundraising so a free-will offering will be taken on April 12th for Rev. Jastram’s mission to Asia. Checks can be made payable to “The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod” with “Jastram” in the memo line.
