In this series, those involved with CLC foreign missions profile one aspect of our overseas endeavors.

They continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.” (Acts 2:42)

God’s blessings through His Word come powerfully to individuals who study and ponder the Scriptures. There is also a special benefit that comes through mutual sharing of that Word of God. Many such blessings were realized in Moshi, Tanzania on January 23-25, 2024 at the pastoral conference of the Tanzanian Church of the Lutheran Confession. There were thirty-five in attendance, including several laymen and students from Wittenberg Seminary. Studies included “Pastoral Responsibilities” by Pastor Robert Loskira, “Questions and Bible Answers about Baptizing Children” by Missionary Bruce Naumann, and “A Scriptural Study of the Lord’s Supper” by Pastor Paul Nolting of Valentine, Nebraska. We also had regular devotions, brief reports from the attending pastors, and a closing communion service. This was a very beneficial occasion for this small, conservative Lutheran fellowship, for which we thank God!

Following the conference, Mission Board Chairman Joel Krafft and Missionary Bruce Naumann visited our sister churches in Kenya and Uganda. They visited two schools in Kenya where about 250 students receive Christian instruction, with support from CLC Project Kinship. In Uganda pastors gathered for a conference in the town of Iganga, where Daniel Mugeni serves as pastor. He also cares for twenty orphans who live at his home. With God’s blessings, the Church of the Lutheran Confession in Uganda (CLCU) will be received into fellowship with the CLC this summer. There were six Ugandan pastors in attendance at the conference, and all were edified by the Word of God which we shared. For more photos and video clips, see Missionary Naumann’s blog at
