Deaconess Carol Halter

Serving the Lord in Hong Kong


Deaconess Carol Lee Halter has served as an evangelistic missionary among the Chinese people in Hong Kong since 1981. From 1969 to 1981, Carol served as a missionary with the Chinese Lutheran Church of the Holy Spirit in San Francisco, Calif. For three and a half years before that, she was a volunteer missionary in Hong Kong.

Carol does humanitarian, evangelistic and educational work among Chinese people of all ages who live in Hong Kong. Her prayer is that all Chinese people will hear the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ — especially from each other. Fluent in Cantonese, Carol nurtures and trains Chinese people to grow in Christ and to share the Gospel. She does this by holding educational and evangelism seminars and Bible classes, and by counseling individuals.

After her deaconess internship and her 1965 graduation from Valparaiso University as a Lutheran deaconess, Carol committed her life to ministry to Chinese people. She received her master of ministry degree from Hong Kong Concordia Theological Seminary in 1984.



Carol asks you to pray that she would be filled with the Holy Spirit to do what God wants her to do in proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the Chinese people. Let us give thanks to God that Carol serves His children in this part of the world.

The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod Inc., including Mission Central (in Mapleton, Iowa), is an IRS registered 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity.

A contribution designated (restricted) for a specific purpose, when accepted, will be used only to fund expenses related to that purpose. Occasionally, we may receive more in contributions for a particular purpose than can be wisely applied to it in the foreseeable future or the purpose may cease to be feasible. In these situations, the LCMS will make reasonable attempts to contact contributors to apply their contribution toward another aspect of ministry that aligns closely the contributor’s goals and values. If a contributor cannot be contacted, the LCMS will use the gift to meet a similar pressing need that most closely matches the contributor's original intent.

Consistent with Synod Board policy and in recognition of a more challenging economic and philanthropic/fundraising environment due to inflationary pressure, not more than 12.5 percent of any charitable contribution will be allocated to administering gifts and communicating with contributors (compared to a not-more-than ceiling of 10.5 percent the previous fiscal year). Contributions received and accepted by the LCMS are deemed to be in agreement with this statement.
