Serving the Savior
News from the Schempfs


Good News! God is at Work!

Please Pray for:

  • Our return to Africa (in God’s perfect timing when borders reopen) to work at Christ Evangelical Lutheran Seminary in Sierra Leone.
  • The LCMS – President Matthew Harrison, Rev. Dan McMiller, professionals at the Office of International Missions (OIM), pastors and teachers, churches and schools as we struggle with the fallout of COVID-19
  • Lutheran schools at every level – that God’s Word may be taught in truth and purity to the next generation 
  • God’s provision for the continent of Africa as they struggle with COVID-19 and a shortage of resources
  • Protection and mercy for medical workers and all those exposed to COVID-19
  • Wisdom as we wait on the Lord to give us direction 
  • An outpouring of the Holy Spirit so that many people in the U.S. and throughout the world will be drawn to Jesus as their Lord and Savior

Give thanks for: 

  • Congregations and Pastors connecting online – worship services, bible study, hymn sings, virtual VBS  
  • Individuals who share their expertise in technology to benefit the church 
  • Technology that allows Christians throughout the world to stay connected
  • Good health and daily strength for ourselves and our family
  • Teachers/parents who are working long hours to find new ways to share educational responsibilities 
  • Faithful warriors who pray for us often
  • Faithful individuals, families, congregations and folks at Mission Central who offer ongoing prayer and financial support
