Partner’s in Ministry
August’s Partner in Ministry is
Rev. Themba Mkhabela
August’s Partner in Ministry goes global! Supporting Reverend Themba Mkhabela, ELCA Missionary in Madagascar. It is through Global Mission that Good Shepherd is able to support Rev. Themba Mkhabela. Global Mission nurtures the ELCA’s world engagement through the theology and practice of accompaniment by walking together with our global companions. Our work together has a multi-faceted approach to mission; from sending missionaries and personnel, to offering grants and scholarships designed to strengthen global church leadership and to support the ministries of companions.
Through Good Shepherd’s sponsorship of long-term of ELCA missionaries and Young Adults in Global Mission YAGM participants, we are walking alongside our international companions in every corner of the globe as they spread the good news and reach out to neighbors with love and care. Your prayers, communication and support allow missionaries to fully live into their ministry, connecting with global companies and offering their skills for God’s good work. Not all of us can be missionaries but all of us can grow together by supporting them!
