global missionLELBA's Global Mission ministers to citizens living in the vicinity of Tiruhirapalli in southern India's Tamil Nadu province. The mission serves the townspeople's spiritual as well as practical needs. Resident evangelists and pastor, through local parishes, assist those in need or in crisis. For example, the mission houses a boys' shelter for male youths living in extreme poverty. Impoverished women who have been battered or exploited within the family can seek asylum in the Mabel Stephen Support Centre.

LELBA's Global Mission works together with the Latvian Evangelical Lutheran Church (LELB) Committee on Missionary Service and with Violet Stephen. Ms. Stephen is president of the Anna Irbe LELB Mission to India. LELB's Committee on Missionary Service and Ms. Stephen are seeking ways to continue the Latvian Church's role in Tamil Nadu.
