On June 9 we were privileged to have WELS World Missions Administrator Pastor Larry Schlomer give us information about the outreach opportunity our synod has in the country of Vietnam. Information has also been passed on through CTL and WELS publicity, such as in a recent WELS Connection and WELS Together newsletter. What an amazing opportunity to train Hmong pastors to serve the one hundred thousand people in their congregations. A number of you have provided additional offerings for this work. Others have asked how they might do so. One way to give an offering is to place a check in a white envelope, write “Vietnam Mission” on the outside, and place it in the offering plate on an upcoming Sunday — or send it to our church office in the mail (1650 N Brookfield Road, Brookfield, WI 53045). We will record your offering and send it to our WELS office. Another way to give an offering is to do so directly on the WELS website by clicking on this link: You may also go to that link to find our more information about the background of this mission effort.
