As previously noted in October’s Upcoming Events post, Rev. Dr. Christopher Ahlman will head to Russia on October 16 to join fellow missionary Rev. Matthew Heise and colleagues from the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Ingria in Russia (ELCIR) for their Synod Convention and the Day of Music wherein their new hymnal will be presented. Rev. Ahlman will play several recitals and offer lectures. Recently, the ELCIR posted a short blurb about Rev. Dr. Christopher Ahlman on their site. You can access that article here. Many web browsers are able to translate this into English for you.
- Please pray for the ELCIR as they meet in Convention that God would give them wisdom and fellowship.
- Please give thanks for the new ELCIR hymnal.
- Please pray for safe travels for LCMS missionaries and also for ECLIR members and clergy who are traveling for the Convention and Day of Music.
