DID YOU KNOW SAINT PATRICK WAS A CHRISTIAN MISSIONARY?
Saint Patrick’s Day is in honor of Saint Patrick, the missionary who brought Christianity to the Emerald Isles, as Ireland is known. It is truly a day of celebrating Irish history, ancestry, traditions, and customs.
The main priority of a missionary is to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ our Savior to all people of the world who have never heard of His saving grace and Good News. There are many LCMS missionaries stationed all over the world and they are far away from their families.
LWML supports missionaries throughout the world. This month celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day by praying for our missionaries and send them a card of encouragement. Put a donation in your Mite Box to support LWML Mission Grants. Check out www.lcms.org/prayercards or call 1-888-843-5367 to find out about each missionary family and prayer requests.
And he said to them, "The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore, pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest" (Luke 10:2).
