Help Form African Lutherans to Be Teachers of the Faith

Pray for Lutherans in Africa

... pray for us that the message of the Lord may spread rapidly

and be honored, just as it was with you. And pray that we may be delivered from wicked and evil men, for not everyone has faith. But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen and protect you from the evil one.

(2 Thessalonians 3:1-3)

From FaceBook Post, May 15th, 2024 (here)


After several years of drought, we experienced floods in Kenya which has killed nearly 300 people and left thousands more displaced from their homes. At the LST, some power lines were cut and we experienced and electrical fire, which also electrocuted one of our dairy cows. Just days after the floods, we went to Burundi to celebrate the wedding of one of the LST students, Pacifique. We will write more about that happy event later because we want that news to be separate and a celebration for them.

Tiina and the boys joined Pastor May for the celebration but the night was marred because some political activists threw grenades into a packed bus stop just minutes after we left town. Then, on the way back to the guesthouse, a man was walking in the middle of the dark street. There were no street lights, and Bishop Emile didn't see the man until it was too late. Thanks be to God, he did not die, nor did he have any broken bones. We rushed him to the hospital for emergency care and treated for a concussion.

We had hoped this was the end of the trials, but the very next morning, as we were driving up country, a car pulled out in front of us, and we were in a serious car accident. Tiina suffered the worst injuries and broke her arm as well as getting several scrapes and bruises. To say that the hospital was not up to standard would be an understatement. It was not very sanitary. They didn't have any ice packs, which meant they couldn't keep the swelling down. As a result, they couldn't put a proper cast on Tiina's arm. They did put a soft cast but then they didn't have any slings for her so they had to improvise. Thankfully she is doing ok but the social media posts might not be as regular for the next 4-6 weeks. Please keep her, the man who was struck, the LST, and Kenya in your prayers.

We really covet them.
