Missions

Mission Partner

  • Our June Mission Partner is SMI Haiti. The name, “Sundouloi Ministries, Incorporated” (SMI Haiti), comes from the Greek “sundoulos” which means “fellow servant”.  It emphasizes our desire to join together with others of like-mind to fulfill the Lord’s commission to care for His children.
  • Our Mission Partner for July is SON (Spiritual Orphans Network). SON works in former communist countries where Christianity was outlawed and punishable by imprisonment, exile or death. As a sending agency, SON has placed career missionaries in Poland, Latvia, Ukraine, Russia, Hungary, Albania, Turkey, and Dubai.

Past 2021 Mission Trip

Mark your calendars for a mission trip to God Speed Equine on August 28th. The Iowa Mission District has partnered with God Speed Equine that is in Dallas Center, IA (close to Des Moines) to build a new corral because they have outgrown their existing space. First Lutheran Church in Manchester has organized the entire mission trip. They currently have 17 skid steers, over 20 UTVs, roughly 60 people signed up already. There are committees and teams for everything: food, water, placing posts, setting posts, running wire, stapling, battery exchangers, etc. You name it, there is a place for you to help out with your level of skills and interests. This is a mission trip that is already planned, we just need people to do the work now. We may even have the opportunity to make this a longer trip if anyone is interested in helping First Lutheran Church early during the week for set up. If you are interested in joining myself and a few others from Emmons, please sign up in the Narthex.
