Back to Tim’s Roots

This morning we attended a church service at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Courtland, MN, where  Tim’s maternal grandmother attended as a child.  The graves of Tim’s great-grandparents are in the cemetery next door to the church

The church was started by German immigrant farmers to Minnesota and services were held in German into the 1920’s.  As a child Tim remembers special church services in German were held at the church.  photo

The founders of this church understood the need to hear God’s Word and worship in their mother tongue.  So it there was something special about seeing Tim up front in this morning sharing about the ministry of Wycliffe and our desire to see everyone be able to have access to God’s Word in their own language.

We are thankful for the rich Christian heritage of Tim’s family and the support of Immanuel Lutheran of our ministry.
