Dear Lucy Leader … How can we reach out to a missionary?

Dear Lucy Leader,

The group in our church loves to support missions through prayer and giving mite offerings. We would like to interact more personally with missionaries. How can we reach out to a missionary?

Mission-Minded Martha

Dear Mission-Minded Martha,

You are answering Jesus’ command to make disciples of all nations. Thank you for your support of missions through prayer and mite giving. LWML, as Lutheran Women in Mission, has been actively involved in supporting missions around the world with mite offerings for over 75 years.

A list of LCMS missionaries, their photos, and where they serve can be found at More resources — including additional LCMS resources — are available on the LWML website.

Missionaries would love to have you as a partner. LWML has a wonderful resource, Care for a Missionary, that will help you experience the joy of supporting and praying for specific needs of that missionary.  

May God bless you as you uphold His missionaries in prayer. May He bless your efforts to reach out to those missionaries!

Lucy Leader
