Watch Lauren’s faith story

Dear Friend of Missions,

Meet Lauren, an adult confirmand and member at Intown Lutheran Church in Atlanta, Ga. In this special video, hear how her life was changed by the gospel she heard through a WELS home mission congregation. We praise God for working powerfully in Lauren’s heart, your heart, and mine!

There are millions of more “Laurens” out there! They are hurting. They are lost. They need to hear the good news that we have a Savior who died and rose again, giving us forgiveness and eternal life.

That’s why WELS is launching an ambitious new initiative to plant 100 missions in 10 years from 2023–2033. This effort is not about numbers and statistics; it’s about everyday, real people. It’s about reaching Lauren and others just like her as we carry out the Great Commission that Christ has given us.

Carrying out this mission and taking up this aggressive initiative is exciting! Just imagine the number of souls that can be reached as we plant many more missions. Yet, we all know these efforts come with a cost. This is where you can help. While it’s unrealistic to think that one single person would fund this entire multi-million dollar initiative, it isn’t unrealistic to think that thousands of God’s children working together can.

Might you be one of those individuals? Might you be willing to consider giving a generous donation that helps share the gospel across North America? Thank you for praying about these efforts and how you can participate.

Serving together with you,

Pastor Mark Gabb
Chairman, WELS Board for Home Missions
