LAMP Volunteer Missionaries provide opportunities for meaningful engagement in northern Canadian communities. It’s about building relationships, and your contribution is a significant witness. Teaching weekly VBS is one way that LAMP missionaries bring the Good News of the Gospel to children in the North. Prayer partners and financial gifts are other ways for you to support LAMP’s work in sharing the love of Christ.
Our desire is not to just say that we "call for prayer," but that we actually pray. Therefore, we have added a confidential form to our website which enables you to help us pray for those who are in need. The names you submit will only be seen by those who are associated with and trusted by LAMP to pray. They will not be contacted, nor will you. Please let us know how we can pray!
CROSS LAKE, MANITOBA – Lutheran Association of Missionaries and Pilots (LAMP) is encouraging Lutherans to pray for Cross Lake (Pimicikamak Cree Nation) as they struggle with a recent outbreak of youth suicides. From mid-December 2016 to mid-March 2016, six suicides (most of them youth) have taken place and dozens of suicide attempts have taken place. In a school of 1,200 more than 150 of the students are on a suicide-watch list. The crisis has led the community to declare a state of emergency.
“What do we do when receive this terrible news and a cry for help? We do what we believe Jesus would have us to do,” says LAMP Executive Director Ron Ludke in a recent statement. “We pray and we ask friends like you to pray with us. We go to show support by our presence. We share words of assurance and comfort from Scripture. We proclaim the Gospel of Jesus which is our only true source of comfort and hope.” Read the entire article on Canadian Lutheran Online...
