May Missions of the Month:
Project Timothy & World Gospel Mission
We are part of an unbroken chain. Paul – Timothy – faithful pastors – and on and on through the years. This pattern of carefully passing on the faithfully entrusted message is the heartbeat of the Christian church and her mission. The death of Jesus Christ has made a way for God to bring sinful men back to a right relationship with Him– by grace alone through faith alone. This is the message to be proclaimed!
From its inception the Christian church has sent teachers into the world with this message. Well-trained pastors are critically needed in Kenya. The Evangelical Lutheran Church in Kenya is the fastest-growing Lutheran church in Africa today. But the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Kenya has a mere 140 pastors to serve 700 congregations with 100,000 members. Project Timothy-Kenya is dedicated to providing a remedy for this need, equipping leaders for the dramatically growing church in Africa.
WORLD GOSPEL MISSION
World Gospel Mission partners with individuals and churches worldwide to make disciples of Christ and encourage believers to become mission-active through ministries that reach the whole person-physically and spiritually-transforming communities. Christ Lutheran Church is partnering with Pete and Angela Olsen who are going to Kenya to serve at the Tenwek Hospital under WGM. Pete will train Kenyan physicians while also teaching about the Great Physician. He hopes these physicians will then go out to the rural areas of Kenya to share the gospel of Christ. Angela will be teaching their own children as well as other missionaries’ kids, she hopes to be able to have a role in the education of the Kenyan families and teachers working with children with special needs.
