“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold the new has come.” ( 2 Corinthians 5:17)
Happy New Year! This is a time when people make resolutions in many areas of their life; among the popular ones are weight loss and adopting a healthier lifestyle. I choose to look towards what God has in store. I can’t being to imagine what things may come my way, but I know with certainty that the Lord will be with me every step of the way. Michael and I endeavor to be better ambassadors for Christ; we desire to continue to deepen our relationship with Christ and to share His love with many. We step into this “new year” one moment, one day at a time. And thus the year has already been busy as our East Africa field welcomed and thanked God for new missionaries and for volunteers from the agricultural consultancy.
Archbishop Joseph Ochola Omolo - ELCK
Sunday January 26th was a special day. Rev. Dr. Joseph Ochola Omolo was installed as the newly elected Archbishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Kenya (ELCK). Bishops and pastors from Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, South Africa, South Sudan and Uganda came to support their brother in Christ. Also in attendance of this most joyous occasion were family, friends, mission partners and congregation members.
The following day, our East Africa field office hosted a fellowship gathering for all the bishops and pastors that came for the installation. A wonderful way to start this “New Year” united together in Christ.
