Last year, an LHM-Argentina volunteer visited Jonathan and Carla and gave them some booklets. Over time, Jonathan and Carla became friends with the volunteer and they went to some LHM-Argentina events with him. Recently the volunteer shared that through the power of the Holy Spirit, Jonathan and Carla became Christians. They are now members at a local church. We are thankful for the staff and volunteers who share the Gospel message with those who need to hear it.
LHM's programming and resources through ministry centers around the world are created locally, ensuring maximum impact and accuracy of the message of the Gospel. Our staff members grew up speaking the languages they do outreach in and know the culture intimately as an insider. As local people, they are particularly well qualified to know how to communicate the Gospel effectively in their context. Since our staff members are from that culture and understand the local needs, LHM can customize our outreach to the particular issues that people are facing and begin establishing a more personal relationship.

Lila is 45 years old and has struggled with alcohol addiction for 20 years while also being involved in prostitution. She felt discouraged with her life and had suicidal thoughts. She was not religious and had never attended church. One of her friends introduced her to LHM-Kenya and she was welcomed into a fellowship group through the ministry's Reaching Rahab holistic program.
