November 1, 2020 - As of September 29, 2020, we at St. John Lutheran have adopted the Rev. Dr. Gerald and Heidi Paul in their career mission work in the Cayman Islands. As a pastor and church planter, Gerald works with local church leaders at Safe Harbour Lutheran Church to reach out to the people of the Cayman Islands with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Gerald also seeks to serve the Cuban refugee population of Grand Cayman, and he supports Concordia the Reformer Seminary in the Dominican Republic as an adjunct professor. In her role, Heidi supports the mission efforts and is exploring the possibility of starting a preschool for local children.
Gerald’s birthday is April 19 and Heidi’s is November 28. Their Wedding Anniversary is July 4. The Official Adoption Agreement for the Direct Support of our Missionaries in the Cayman Islands is located on the bulletin board in the Narthex.
Please pray for Gerald and Heidi as they serve the Lord in the Cayman Islands and throughout the Caribbean. Let us give thanks that they are ministering to God’s children in this part of the world. ( Mission Central Letter...)
