A vocational guidance workshop…

…  took place on August 26th, organized by La Concordia congregation. In this workshop, we contributed through the Joel Project. 21 senior-year students from the Concordia Institute participated, and they were all very surprised and thankful for everything which was offered to them: guidance, Pastor Schimpf’s presentation, lunch and LHM Argentina materials. This was a highly rewarding experience, and we hope we will be able to repeat and improve it next year, since we consider it is necessary to work further in this area.

Ecclesiastes 3: 1-11 gave room to an opportunity for reflection and exchange of opinions. The group, made up by students of the same age, allowed them to review the paradigms on which they plan their personal projects, as well as to explore diverse alternatives to initiate them, allowing them to broaden their perspectives. Group work was given priority since professions are social roles that are performed in groups.

He is Claudio

A little bit about me:

My name is Claudio Abel Fredrich, I’m from the Province of Misiones, and I was born on July 12 1990, in the town ofSanta Rita, Misiones.

I grew up in the country, where I lived until I was 18 years old. After I finished high school, I moved to the province of Buenos Aires to continue studying at the Concordia Seminary of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Argentina.

What made me want to go to the Seminary?

Ever since I was little, I have always had a very active church life along with my family, which has always participated in the Evangelical Lutheran Church. I was always interested in everything that was done in the church, from Bible school classes to confirmation classes.

But my interest in studying in the Seminary was born when a Seminary student came to my congregation for a year of practice. And it was this student who awoke the desire to study in the Seminary. Years passed by and when I was in my confirmation classes the pastor in charge also asked me if I would like to enter the Seminary when I finished high school. And here I am, in my third year at the Seminary, and as a requirement, being a third year student I am carrying out an internship all year long at LHM Argentina . My tasks at the foundation involve answering phone calls and other activities.





Text Message Program

We would like to share with you some of the answers our volunteers receive from the Text Message Program:

My dear friends, every time I receive your messages I forward them to other contacts, one of them was thinking of committing suicide and your messages were very encouraging. This person has changed his ideals, even his mind. Blessings (Daniel)

Hello, good morning. Yes, I have shared them, especially with a friend who has a lot of problems with her partner, and I have not seen her in a long time. I love her very much, she is a strong woman, very special to me!! (Nilda)

Yes, a woman told me she was not doing well because she left God aside. And through a message I wanted her tears to change into smiles and her darkness into peace. I also gave her CPTLN booklets and I am happy to feel useful. Blessings – (Graciela )

Ok, at least two of the people to which I sent messages answered that they needed to read something like that and asked me to invite them to a church service and I am waiting  (Cleidi )

Thank you for your prayers, thank you for always having me in mind, for being a part of this chain and all of us together under God’s love which opens doors to a new life through our Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit which lives in all of us. Kisses and God be with you, protect you, and bless you (Juan Carlos)

HELLO CPTLN! Thanks to God and to you for allowing me to share the messages, which are also of hope to me! Everything is going well with my GAD contacts, my prayers for you, blessings and kisses (Doris )

Just so you know, I send 15 to 20 messages every Thursday, few people answer me, but nobody tells me not to send them anymore. (Noemí )

Hello my friends at “CPTLN” I am receiving the messages every Thursday I send them to my friends. Up to now I have not had any answers but I am hopeful that God is working in them. (Juana)

Thank you for your wise advice and thank you for always helping me… this is the answer from a contact. Blessings (Enrique)

Thank you for all!
