Lutheran Hour Ministries has scheduled another free webinar for January 19, 2013. The one hour webinar begins at 10 a.m. (Central time). Dr. Lou Jander will speak about being “A Missionary in Times of Disaster.”
Disasters are times of chaos…times of not knowing…times of fear…times of asking why…times of experiencing loss…times of feeling deserted. Disasters come in all sizes and shapes from the individual event that affects one person to one that affects a very large area…they can be natural or man-made. Christians can be a beacon of light to people during these critical times…Christians can listen, pray, serve and share encouraging words from Scripture.
During this webinar, participants will hear the personal experiences that come from disasters and the practical ways that they can share the love of Jesus. Followers of Jesus Christ can literally be the “hands and feet” of Jesus.
