Together Again…Somos Uno En Cristo!

Date posted: Tuesday 12 October 2021

We may not have been able to gather in person on Sept. 25 for our Guatemala Friends meeting, but Zoom allowed us to gather face to face and heart to heart. Staff from the Iglesia Luterana Agustina de Guatemala (ILAG) shared updates through beautiful photos and stories. Hearing directly from four different staff members about a variety of ILAG’s ministries connected us to the ongoing work that is changing lives. We, who gathered from near and far, shared our joy, love, encouragement and enthusiasm for the work of the ILAG and rejoiced in the relationships we’ve developed through our partnership.


If you missed this meeting you won’t want to miss this update! Through the recorded Guatemala Friends presentation, you will learn about the ways in which the ILAG continues to live out its call to share Christ’s love in tangible ways. An incredible collection of images will take you to various sites as you hear from:

  • Pastora Beatriz Castillo, Coordinator: Colegio Luterana Augustina de Guatemala
  • Melissa Sipaque, Teacher: Centro Milagro
  • Diego Gil, Delegations Coordinator: SEED Program (Sustainable Agriculture)
  • Pastora Karen Castillo, President: COVID-19 Vaccinations, Village Visits, Partnership, Church Leadership and Ecumenical Involvement


As you listen to each speaker, graciously receive the gratitude they express for the Saint Paul Area Synod churches and other friends who continue to be faithful partners in their work.


Please share the video with others and continue to pray the staff and all members of the ILAG.
