My name is Pastor Todd Ohlmann. I am blessed to serve a CLC Lutheran congregation in the St. Louis, Missouri area. I am also blessed with the privilege of serving my Lord for 4 to 6 weeks annually as a part-time foreign missionary to India.
On July 8th, 2007 I will be accompanied by two other pastors and thirteen other men and women from several congregations of the CLC, who volunteered to serve as Mission Helpers. We will depart on an evening flight from Chicago O'Hare airport to Chennai in the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu.
While in India we will divide into three teams to teach and proclaim God's saving word through pastoral training seminars and child evangelism. If past trips are any indication, and the Lord continues to bless this effort, the Mission Helpers will have the opportunity to reach upwards of 5,000 children with God's saving Word. Some of these children are members of our sister congregations in India, but many have never heard the truth of God's word concerning the forgiveness and salvation that has been won for them through the life, suffering, death, and resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
Please come back often to see pictures and read reports from myself and the other Mission Helpers.
