Are you ready for an eye-opening experience? Lutheran Hour Ministries' Online Mission Trip (OMT) introduces students, teachers, parents, and anyone interested in international missions to different parts of the world. As we learn about new cultures, we see how all of God's people can make a difference in this world.
During National Lutheran Schools Week, Jan. 22-25, 2018, LHM will take you to the Asian nation of Cambodia! Through engaging daily videos, you will walk the streets, see the food, visit the cities and towns, explore the wildlife, dive into the country's history, and more! You will also have a chance to meet real people who God has reached through the work of LHM.
The Online Mission Trip website has been completely redesigned for 2018. The website will still offer a full version of the approximately 15-minute video for each day, but you will now also be able to explore curriculum, activities, chapel talks, videos, and additional items for a more interactive experience.
Here are four ways you can help your child or grandchild journey even deeper through the Online Mission Trip:
- Join the Card Campaign Challenge to create a card for someone in Cambodia. Encourage your child to draw a picture or write a short message to share God's love with youth halfway around the world. They will learn a valuable lesson about how they can impact others in their daily life.
- Use the content in the "Day in the Life" videos as a conversation starter to discuss how life for children in the U.S. is similar and/or different with kids in other parts of the world. Your children can discuss how God has blessed each of us, regardless of where we live, with His Good News.
- Continue the conversation and experience even more on Facebook. Join the OMT Facebook group by searching "Online Mission Trip 2018".
- Take part in the Milk Bank Project to collect support for Cambodia. You can download a milk carton bank template online and make it as a special project! Raising our goal of $30,000 will carry out ministry in the country for an entire year by sharing the Gospel online, airing weekly radio broadcasts, sponsoring public events, creating youth programs, and teaching others to share their faith. You can also go online to lhm.org/omtcambodia and click the Donate button. No matter how you choose to participate, you can become part of a mission-minded community committed to seeing the Gospel shared globally and lives changed by Christ!
