Thank you for stopping by and taking a look. We serve as missionaries sent by The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS). We live in Nairobi, Kenya and as the LCMS Area Director of Eastern and Southern Africa, Shauen works with Lutheran church bodies across this whole side of the continent. Please pray for us as we serve the Lord in these varied contexts and that the Lord would use us as His instruments to encourage and build up God's church in Eastern and Southern Africa. We give thanks to the Lord that He has given us this opportunity to serve Him and the people He loves in this part of the world. We hope this website serves as a means of communication with our family and friends half a world away. Please visit our blog, read our newsletter and drop us a note!
