2017–2019 Mission Grant 11
Training Lutheran Middle Eastern Missionaries
Biblical Orthodox Lutheran Mission
The mission of the Biblical Orthodox Lutheran Mission (BOLM) is a ministry primarily to Arabic-speaking peoples and Muslims in particular. They bring the Good News of salvation through their teaching and by the power of the Holy Spirit. BOLM’s outreach impacts lives in the United States and in the Middle East. They educate and disciple new believers and, as the Lord wills, commission them as missionaries. They need funds to support their internet seminary for two years; acquire Bibles in various languages for distribution, acquire and distribute copies of Luther’s Small Catechism in Arabic, and for expenses for phone and internet.
WHEREAS, Christ in His Holy Word has charged us to reach out to all nations; and
WHEREAS, The teaching and preaching of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus to those bound in chains through ignorance and through cults is crucial; and
WHEREAS, Extraordinary means are necessary to reach those in Muslim countries; therefore be it
RESOLVED, That the delegates gathered at the 2017 Lutheran Women’s Missionary League Convention in Albuquerque, New Mexico, vote the sum of $93,000 to help fund the work of Biblical Orthodox Lutheran Mission in the Middle East and worldwide to bring Muslims and others to the Lord Jesus.
