Missionaries Outside of Motango Seminary

I received this in the mail the other day and will be sharing the work of the young men mentioned by the author.

Grateful for a Savior who willingly came “to be sin for us, that we might become the
righteousness of God in Him.” 2 Corinthians 5:21
Dear Family, Friends, Prayer and financial partners in Mission
As we leave Kenya and head back to our US home, we give thanks to God for His love
and mercy and for the love and support of you are family and friends. We pray the
attached Advent devotions, written by the Advanced Writing class at Neema Lutheran
Theological Seminary in Matongo, Kenya, will bring peace and joy to you as you
prepare for the celebration of the Lord’s birth.
The three writers decided to take on the challenge and worked hard to accomplish the
task. All three are Lutheran pastors (and ESL students); Otti Charles and Thomas
are pastors from South Sudan and Alloys is a pastor from Tanzania. Otti Charles and
Alloys were both blessed with baby daughters during this semester and were looking
forward to celebrating with their wives during the Christmas break. The South
Sudanese pastors are both living and serving in refugee camps; Pastor Alloys serves
multiple congregations and cares for many orphans and widows. They know the reality
of the love and mercy of God and have taught us that the joy of Christmas really
does lie in that manager so long ago and that the message is still that of the angel
who proclaimed to the lowly shepherds, “For unto you is born this day…a Savior, who
is Christ the Lord.”
We also thank the sainted Martin Luther’s contributions to our devotions as even now
we remember his Christmas words of encouragement “…that nothing else should be
preached except that this child is the Savior and far better than heaven and earth.
Him, therefore, we should acknowledge and accept; confess him as our Savior in every
need, call upon him, and never doubt that he will save us from all misfortune.”
Jan and I join our prayers that your season of celebrating His birth is blessed and
God keep you safe and faithful
