He has spent the past five years in seminary in Brazil, and is currently serving as Pastor of three congregations in Honduras: Luz del Mundo (Light of the World) in La Canada, Cristo Liberador (Christ the Liberator) in San Nicholas, Olancho, and El Senor es mi Pastor (The Lord Is My Shepherd) in Tegucigalpa. Representing the Northeastern Minnesota Synod at the ordination are pastor Jan Mehlhoff and Pastor Joan Gunderman.
Pastors Mehlhoff and Gunderman will also support Kinder Dr. Martin Lutero in La Canada. This is the kindergarten that our Synod supports.
As part of their trip they will also assist Josefina Santos in conducting a water filter workshop, also supported by our Synod.

This year the NE MN Synod Discipleship Challenge will live out our faith practices through the sharing of stories. We are living in the middle of God’s story – for us and for our neighbor. As we share stories of life and faith, we come to KNOW God’s Story for our lives and the world…to BE God’s Story of love and reconciliation in the world…and to TELL God’s Story so all can know Christ’s love in the world!
All are invited to use the STORY Acronym Tool and Story Starters this year to share stories of life and faith as we dig deep together on our faith journeys.
