Prayer for Night Watchmen

2016-07-25 13.40.55.jpg

Security in Nairobi needs to be tighter than in the United States, so we have two night watchmen, Barnabas and Evans, who take turns on the night shift watching over our house.  Last week for family devotions we prayed one of the prayers for compline that was so appropriate to their work that my daughter Eunice made this little wall decoration that now hangs in the watchmen’s quarters.

  1. Pastor Clausing and family,    God Bless the work you are doing there in East Africa.  Our Savior Lutheran Church, Clyde, NC is praying for you and your mission there and we are teaching our Sunday School and VBS about your work.  There was an article in our latest weekly newsletter which I have attached below.

    | Our 2016 Vacation Bible School missions project this year is adopting a missionary family!  We want to initiate a more long-term relationship between our congregation (OSLC) and the Clausing family. The Clausing family has recently moved to Nairobi, Kenya where Rev. Clausing serves with the LCMS as Mission Center Coordinator for East Africa region.  Pastor Clausing assists churches in Uganda, Tanzania, and Kenya in providing theological education for their church workers, Jonathan and his wife Anita, have nine children – Emil, Ellie, Ernie, Eunice, Ethan, Eric, Eileen, Elijah, and Emmanuel – who join them on the mission field. Please pray for the entire Clausing family as they serve in East Africa.  Pray that the Word of God takes root bears the fruit of faith in the lives of the East Africans who heart it.  Consider also joining in by writing notes of encouragement to one of them or financially giving to our missionary family.
