“We Send You On In Jesus’ Name.” 

On Monday, January 2, 2017, a commissioning service for Missionary Todd Ohlmann was held at Messiah Lutheran Church in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. CLC Board of Missions member Nathanael Mayhew officiated at the service, and synodical president Michael Eichstadt conducted the rite of installation. Pastor Bruce Naumann addressed those assembled on the basis of 3 John 1-8, under the theme, “We Send You On In Jesus’ Name.” Many board members, faculty, and clergy participated in the laying on of hands—including Board of Missions Chairman Joel Krafft and members Steven Leinberger and Pastor Robert Sauers; Pastors Paul Tiefel, David Baker, and John Hein; and Professors Paul Sullivan and Paul Naumann.

As outlined in last month’s Mission Newsletter, the duties attendant on this call will differ somewhat from those of the duties specified in the calls of previous overseas missionaries. Missionary Ohlmann will be stationed here in the United States, but will spend approximately six months each year in overseas travel as he conducts regular visitations to our sister church bodies. The CLC is currently in fellowship with church bodies and congregations in India, Nepal, Myanmar, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Republic of Congo, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Nigeria, Ghana, and Togo. In addition, we are exploring new contacts in Liberia, Haiti, Japan, Italy, Australia and Argentina.

While he is stateside, Missionary Ohlmann will visit domestic subsidized congregations, correspond with foreign affiliates and new contacts, continue development of the Online Theological Studies website, assist with the CLC Mission Helper Program, be a guest preacher, and attend area delegate conferences. We ask for your prayers on behalf of Missionary Ohlmann and his family as they continue their service to our Lord.
