We were pleased to host Pr. Alexander and Evgeny with the help of the good folks at Unity Lutheran, Bel-Nor who housed them, hosted them showing the city, giving them rest time, an audience at an evening event, and arranging for air transportation to Wichita. Thanks much, Unity !
We at Christ Lutheran had them for the day of June 11. We had an interpreter in the morning and evening from the Latvian Lutheran congregation that meets in our building. A Webster U. student from Russia was able to help us in the afternoon.
In the morning we visited St. Philip’s Lutheran in St. Louis city. We had a conversation with Janis Hutchinson about the Outreach Ministry out of the congregation. Pr. Ledbetter also showed the church building and outside gave a description of the ministry context. We proceeded to the site of the former Immanuel Lutheran and viewed the building exterior, mentioned the historic Lutheran cemetery there, and described the Project Cope ministry across the street.
