LALM Information

The Latin American Lutheran Mission (LALM) is an independent Lutheran mission started in 1936 (see history) and is focused on proclaiming the Gospel to the people of Mexico as well as the larger Latin American region. A 501(c)3 organization that seeks involvement and mission partners with persons, congregations, non-profit organizations and college church groups as it encourages Bible study and discipleship training to equip Latin American people to fulfill Christ’s “Great Commission.” Today, LALM strengthens Christian congregations, equips and send leaders, and meet community needs with special emphasis in hunger erradication efforts domestically and abroad.
