For the past 28 years, since 1990, the Nebraska Synod has shared a companion synod relationship with the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Argentina and Uruguay.
From Monday, October 8, through October 18, Pastor Justin Eller is leading an accompaniment trip, sponsored by the Nebraska Synod, to Argentina and Uruguay. Their mission is to further strengthen the relationship between the Nebraska Synod and the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Argentina and Uruguay, exchange stories and experiences and learn more about our partners in ministry.
They will visit ministry sites of our companion church, such as schools, a home for the elderly, a facility for individuals living with HIV/AIDS, as well as take in the cultural diversity Argentina has to offer.
Here are a few photos Pastor Justin has shared of the accompaniment group at Iguazu Falls in the Argentine province of Misiones!
