ELCA Global Mission
“When Jesus saw her, he called her over and said, ‘Woman, you are set free from your ailment.’ When he laid his hands on her, immediately she stood up straight and began praising God.” Luke 13.12-13
The ELCA helps us connect with the international Lutheran church and its servants in foreign places. Our relationships with others enrich our worship life and broaden our perspective. In recent years, Luther Memorial directly supported the missionary work of Dr. Kristopher and Rebecca Hartwig in Tanzania. Their ministry involved hospice and palliative care services, integrating with other aspects of HIV/AIDS work in the African country.
