Missionaries from Uganda and Spain arrive at Mission Central

 

What a blessing to welcome our dear missionaries from Uganda and Spain to the Lord’s Mission Central.  Yes, on this special Saturday, the Lord sent our Missionaries from Uganda, Mark and Megan Mantey and from Spain, Rev. David and Shelee Warner to present to a group of very, very NOT NORMAL PEOPLE, who were brave enough to come out in this cold, cold weather!

It was so exciting to hear of how the Lord is using the Mantey family in Uganda, where this new church body is baptizing 25 people a week, and the fact that they have grown to 145 congregations!  Mark and Megan told of their work in the Seminary and how they are reaching out to so, so many that haven’t heard the name of Jesus.  Their stories and pictures were an indication that the Holy Spirit is working in an amazing way in this country in East Africa.

Rev. David Warner and Shelee told of their very new work in Spain, and how they have been instrumental in helping to start two new LCMS churches in this country.  In this land of darkness, where only about 10% of people attend church on Sunday morning they are bringing the true Gospel and also reaching out the refugees that are coming to this country.

A wonderful group of people from Omaha, Des Moines, Schleswig and Alta, Iowa also came to hear these reports.  This group then went to visit the Lord’s Creation Theater and the Barn Museum.  Here in the pictures you see the Warner Family and the Mantey Family, and also the group that was able to pray for them and send them back to their CALLING!
