Missions Abroad

Good Shepherd sponsors the following missions abroad:

Through our membership in the Northeastern Iowa Synod of the ELCA, Good Shepherd members share a companion relationship with people who are part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Hungary. Through this relationship, synod members have an opportunity to expand their horizons to learn, grow and pray with and for our Siblings in Christ in Hungary. Good Shepherd also supports Young Adults in Global Mission serving in Hungary. Read more about this relationship here. http://www.neiasynod.org/ministries/companion-synod-hungary/  

This link is an update from our Young Adults in Global Mission in Hungary.  Their May 2019 newsletter is here:  May 2019 Newsletter from Rachel and Zach

Below is a copy of the letter they wrote accompanying their newsletter:

Friends and Colleagues in the Upper Iowa River Conference!

Greetings to you from your missionaries in Central Europe! We continue to give thanks for the many ways in which you support us and our partners in ministry here in Hungary & Serbia!

Attached to this email is our May 2019 Newsletter. It contains updates on our ministry here with the Young Adults in Global Mission & City Park Lutheran congregation. Please feel free to spread the newsletter love by forwarding this to friends or printing out a copy for those in your life who are less technologically inclined.

May this time of Easter Tide continue to bring you new life in abundance!

God’s Peace,
Pr. Rachel & Pr. Zach
