Congo Needs Lutheran Books

Categories: Book Requests


My name is Albert. I am currently enrolled in the EIIT program in St. Louis. I am a Congolese immigrant and I used your materials several years ago to help me in my studies and with our other immigrants in my area.

I have a request from connections in Lubumbashi, Congo who very much want to know more about Lutherans. The LCMS does not have much of a presence in this area. Would it be possible to send the following materials there so they could read them? They are all in Swahili.

1. A Child’s Garden of Bible Stories – as many as possible
2. Book of Concord – 5 copies
3. Small Catechism – 30 copies (whichever edition you have available)
4. Church Leadership – 5 copies
5. Hymnal – 10 copies
6. Stories from the Bible – as many as possible

I know this is a lot, but these people are hungry to be Lutheran and I have nothing to give them. There are no missionaries in the area I can point them to, so I am trying my best from South Dakota.

In Christ,
Albert B.
South Dakota
