About Us


We are Larry and Tina Matro. Larry is a called missionary with the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod serving in Papua New Guinea from  2014-

We also lived as missionaries in PNG from 1985-1993 after Larry graduated from Ft. Wayne Seminary. We came to PNG with one child, and left with four!

After our first term in PNG, Larry served at  Immanuel Lutheran Church in Leland, Michigan for  21 years, from 1993-2014.

We are thankful for our “family” at Immanuel  and for their love and support through the years.

Meet our family:

This picture was taken during our furlough in July 2017  at the beach in Leland, Michigan. Our children currently live in St. Pete, FL, New Fairfield, CT, Holland, MI and Spokane, WA.
