Lutheran Bible Translators (LBT) is an independent Lutheran mission organization dedicated to helping bring people to faith in Jesus Christ.
They strive to do this through their missionaries and staff, who work to make the Word of God available to those who do not yet have it in the language of their hearts.
They have been advancing this mission since 1964.

It supports more than 650 missionaries in some 85 countries around the globe and is a founding partner of Lutheran Services in America, one of the country’s largest social-service organizations.
The members of the South Wisconsin District are Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod congregations and ministries, pastors, teachers, and other professional workers located within the southern half of the state of Wisconsin.
The Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML) is the official women’s auxiliary of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. For over 65 years, the LWML has focused on affirming each woman’s relationship with Christ, encouraging and equipping women to live out their Christian lives in active mission ministries and to support global missions.
Today, LCMS World Mission trains, sends, and supports called and appointed career, long-term, and short-time missionaries throughout the United States and in various countries around the world where there are mission stations, partner churches, schools, or mission relationships.
