Our names are Samuel and Brooke Orozco (nee Rossow), and we are happy to greet you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
In 2011, we were called to be lay-missionaries by the Lutheran Church of Paraguay, South America through Global Lutheran Outreach.  We prepared, packed and began our work there in January, 2012.  We completed our 2-year commitment in mid-December, 2013.

The Lord used this experience to equip each of us in many ways.  We have been back in the United States "on the ground" developing mission in the farmlands of northwest Lansing for the last five years.  Using what we learned in Paraguay and these last years in domestic missions, we are stepping into LMS's vision statement to see "congregations throughout Michigan" serving and sharing the love of Christ with their Hispanic neighbors. 

We hope and pray you are excited along with us to see how God’s plans are unfolding.  We look forward to continuing to develop Hispanic Ministry as you partner with us to reach the overlooked, unconnected and under-served.
In Jesus, The Orozco Family: Samuel, Brooke, Lucie, Karolein and Micah
