UH Campus Ministry (Salt & Light) reaches many International Students

"Lutheran Campus Ministry looks so different from what it did back when I went to school." This was an observation by a volunteer from Trinity Lutheran who has been very instrumental in gathering volunteer and financial support for LINC's Salt & Light Campus ministry FREE luncheons held one time a semester. "It used to be an organization to continue to nurture faith in Lutheran students in college...but now it is so much more of an outreach to people from all cultures and religions."  Indeed, this is so very true at UH! In addition to free luncheons, once a semester, where up to 250 international students may attend, Salt & Light has regular, lunch devotions on Tuesdays and Thursdays which may include up to 15 students who are not only hungry for a meal, but for more information about Christianity.  During the bi-weekly lunch gatherings it's common to have a gathering of Muslims from Turkey, Buddhists from Vietnam, and Hindus from India. Our Christian leaders take time to listen to their concerns and questions, pray for them and share Biblical truths for them to consider. Please keep this mission field in your prayers. 

You are invited to be a part of this mission by "feeding fifteen" (or donate $60)once a month (8 different churches/people doing this would cover all the meals!) or by coming to lead a devotion or to show Christian care. We wish to thank Trinity Lutheran, St.Timothy Lutheran, St. Mark and Communidad de Gracia for their recent support.   

Please contact dorinda@linchouston.org for more information or to schedule Lutheran Campus Ministry Leader, Dr. Petta Johnson to speak at your church.
