The Impact of 'GodConnects'
We are hearing from congregations across the country about the ways they are using LHM's GodConnects video course in basic Christian belief. One used the videos as the basis of its VBS program for senior adults. Another links to GodConnects videos from the "What We Believe" page of its website. Still another is using the video sessions as foundational doctrinal content in their process of planting a new church. Praise God for using LHM's GodConnects to make the story of salvation accessible to people who need to hear it!

A Challenging Mission Field
During August, a team of Lutheran Hour Ministries leaders traveled to four countries in the Middle East to meet with Christian leaders and explore how LHM can support believers, as well as the spread of the Gospel, in the region. Ask God to protect Christians across the Middle East who cling to their precious faith despite the risk of persecution. Ask Him to guide the plans and actions of faithful believers who respond to His call to be His witnesses and share the Good News of Jesus in predominantly Islamic cultures.

Fishers of Men - for Reel!
Join LHM in praising God for calling Christian fishermen to share their faith! The Men's NetWork's 7th North American Fishing Tournament introduced a new feature: team fishing. The idea is for guys to fish with friends or acquaintances in order to build relationships that could lead to spiritual conversations. The stories are rolling in of participants fishing with—and witnessing to—others: a college buddy; a nephew and his fiancée; a whole class of second-graders; a student working on a graduate-school project, and more. Ask God to bless these relationships with opportunities to share God's message of salvation in Jesus.
