Today there are many opportunities to participate in the mission of proclaiming the Good News around the world. Many people travel to different places to perform this task.

In March 2012, the children of many schools of United States made ​​a trip in “virtual Mission” to Paraguay, at that time they experienced the thrill of participate in the mission through a communication system for online video by Internet, similar to a video conference.

The result of the trip “Online Mission” was that many children, not only sent their offerings for mission in Paraguay, but also participated through prayer and especially they sent us thousands of letters. We have read all the letters, it took months to read them all, but it was exciting, we shed tears of joy at the beautiful words of children, it was very important to see the photos of children that gave us the feeling that we are talking personally and indeed had the chance to know them through these photos.

I as the director of the Ministry “Cristo Para Todas Las Naciones – Paraguay” (Lutheran Hour Ministries – Paraguay), I can only say thank you very much for your prayers, thank you very much for the letters. God bless you and keep you in His Grace and Love.
