Jesus never leaves His Church. His Church is not a building but rather the communion of saints, all believers in Jesus. He gives His Church His Holy Word and Sacraments, where He comes to us to be with us, near us, and to save us. Our missionaries in Togo serve God in this country by helping to train local pastors so they can go throughout the countryside and proclaim God’s Word to people and establish congregations where His Sacraments might be given. In the Sacrament of the Altar (the Lord’s Supper), we especially receive forgiveness of sins, life, and salvation. It is wonderful that God is with His Church in Word and Sacraments through the work of our pastors and missionaries who serve in His name!
