For a number of years, CMLC has been supporting the missionary work of Pastor Joshua Gale, first with PLM as the missionary to Philadelphia and more recently in Peru. Pr. Gale reports a new change in his ministry, “I have accepted the call to serve as the executive director of Lutheran Church Charities based out of the Chicago area. Their mission statement provides a great answer to what I will now be doing, and helping others do, at LCC: "...to bring the mercy, compassion, presence and proclamation of Jesus Christ to those suffering and in need."
“This position means we will be leaving Peru and relocating to Chicago on the 24th of April. I thank you all for your encouragement and support over the last almost 8 years of working and serving in urban contexts. Though a lot of my position will be administrative, I will still have plenty of time at the front lines as LCC works across the US and internationally in times of crisis and disaster, along with many other projects that serve those in need through their partners.”
Thank you to the members of CMLC for your continued support of missions locally and around the world.
Yours in Christ,
