Faithful Francophones: how LWMLC mites
have helped French ministry
Webinar – November 7, 2020
On Saturday, November 7, 2020 you will have an opportunity to learn more
about the exciting things happening in ministry to French-speaking people and
how LWML-Canada is helping that happen.
Rev. Dr. David Somers, pastor at l’Église évangélique luthérienne de l’Ascension in Montreal
and missionary-at-large for LCC, will describe how our mites have helped the
Francophone ministry in Quebec and beyond. Bev McKean, vice-president for
Christian Mission, encourages you to get your questions ready for an interactive
webinar presentation. She also suggests that perhaps what we learn may lead
us to ideas for a mission grant proposal for the next triennium. And it won’t be a
moment too soon as the deadline for mission grant proposals is looming.
The webinar begins at 9:00 a.m. (PST) in B.C., 10:00 a.m. in Alberta (MST),
11:00 a.m. in Saskatchewan and Manitoba (CST), 12:00 noon in Ontario (EST),
1:00 p.m. in the Maritimes (AST) and 1:30 p.m. in Newfoundland.

(NEW) Faithful Francophones – How LWMLC Mites have Helped French Ministry (Time Limited Canada Webinar) Presented by Rev. Dr. David Somers, an LCC Missionary at large. Rev. Somers quoted Jerimiah 10:23 to describe this missionary work “I know, O Lord, that the way of man is not in himself, that it is not man who walks to direct his steps.” This becomes evident as he shares the history and challenges of starting Lutheran mission congregations in the French language. What may seem like chaos at times is not and God does not operate in a box. Things happen when God wants them to happen. It is Inspirational how God works through many “faithful Francophones” and others to bring about His plans, even Covid-19. LWMLC has been a part of this mission and has funded and helped in the area of French literature, general outreach and their website.
