Join Us As We Support a Son of Our Congregation
Rev. Joshua and Amanda Gale serve the Lord as career missionaries of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod in Peru. In this role, Joshua plants new churches and mission centers in Lima, Peru. (Learn more about our church's mission work in Peru.) He forms and develops groups of believers into mature, self-sustaining and self-replicating congregations through Word and Sacrament ministry.
Joshua is from Danville, Ill., and his home congregation is Trinity Lutheran Church in Bloomington, Ill. He earned his bachelor’s degree in philosophy at Illinois State University, Normal, Ill., and his M.Div. from Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, Ind. Before becoming a career missionary, Joshua served as a missionary pastor with Philadelphia Lutheran Ministries (2011-2013).
Amanda grew up in Normal, Ill. In his free time, Joshua loves to read, while in her free time, Amanda loves to read and cook. Joshua and Amanda both love spending time with their two beautiful children, Katharina and Zechariah.
Please pray for Joshua and Amanda as they serve the Lord in Peru. Ask God to give them and their children peace as they transition to life in Peru, learning the culture and the Spanish language so they may effectively communicate the Good News of Jesus Christ. Please pray that the Holy Spirit works mightily through the reading and proclamation of the Word to create and sustain faith in the hearts of those individuals who hear it. In addition, please ask God to strengthen and give joy to Joshua has he works to plant new churches and mission centers. Let us give thanks that Joshua and Amanda have answered the call to serve God’s children in Peru!
