The purpose of our Mission of the Month is to increase awareness of individuals and organizations that are part of the LCC synodical family, performing mission work locally, across Canada, or around the world. We may also include some organizations that are part of our community which share the gospel and serve the needy.
Each month we will feature a different mission highlighting the work our church body is doing and giving our members an opportunity to engage with and support with time, talents, and resources. If you would like to support any of the monthly missions, you can give through normal Saint James offering options indicating “Mission of the Month” or give directly to the mission organization using the information provided.
Mission of the Month support is intended to be in addition to regular offerings. Together with all other congregations across Synod, our congregation already uses a portion of all offerings to support the work of Lutheran Church-Canada. We hope and pray that as we are blessed, we continue to be a blessing to others.
John Soltani is an Iranian convert from Islam to Christianity who has been forced to flee his home country in order to protect his life. He is currently living in Istanbul Turkey where he is waiting for word from the Canadian Embassy to come to Canada. Saint James is supporting him through the refugee application process to help him establish a new life in Canada. John is looking forward to being able to live his faith openly without fear of persecution.
