Deaconess Sandra Rhein, Hymnal Consultant for the LCMS Office of International Mission, joins Andy and Sarah to talk about the exciting new developments in the Lutheran hymnals in Mandarin and Amharic, including the Pilot edition of the Chinese Lutheran Service Book that is now in print, the collaborations necessary to produce these hymnals, and what’s on the horizon for the Amharic language hymnal for the church in Ethiopia. For more information on obtaining a Chinese Lutheran Service Book, contact Deaconess Rhein at email@example.com.
