What a joy it is to be in His kingdom and His priests!
I Pet. 2:9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s own people, that you may declare the wonderful deeds of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.

  • As with Israel of old, he forms us to declare His praise. Is. 43:21
  • In these latter days the kingdom of priests is worldwide from every tribe and tongue and people and nation. Rev. 5:9-10
  • As with Moses and his people of old (Ex. 19:5), so with us today we each individually bring our spiritual sacrifices. 1 Pet. 2:5
  • Since we have free access to the throne of mercy(Heb. 10:19), we are encouraged to offer ourselves as living sacrifices to Him. Rom. 12:1
  • Rightly handling the Word of God, we believe(Acts 17:12), study (Acts. 17:11), test (1 Jn. 4:1), spread (Lk. 24:47). Our exciting task is to declare the wonderful deeds of Him who called us out of darkness into His marvelous light.

    1. I take this time and opportunity to thank our almighty Father for the wonderful blessing

      in spreading His word . CLC started in Kisii in the year 2000 with the first Missionary David Koenig .


During our studies with pastor Koenig the first church was started in Etago and was constructed in the year 2002 . As this progress was on other sister churches were also started . Here are the churches that were started and their figures ;

1 . Etago – 35 men 42 women 78 children = Total 155

2 . Chotororo – 25 men 38 women 29 children = ,,,,, 92

3 . Kenunchi – 18 men 35 women 25 children =,,,,,,, 78

4 . Olgumii (maasai) – 16 men 18 women 28 children = ,,,,,,62

5 . Omotembe – 20 men 30 women 38 children =,,,,,,,, 88

6 . Misesi – 25 men 30 women 40 children = ,,,,,,,,, 95

7 . Ritumbe – 18 men 23 women 20 children = ,,,,,,,,, 61

8 . Sare (luo) – 15 men 10 women 22 children =,,,,,,,,,,, 47


Due to this epidermic of HIV Missionary Koenig and the CLC members show the need to have an orphanage school to assist those CLC orphans who are not privileged to get education . Through the help of the mission board , Kinship group has managed to construct 8 classes . The school is being run by the church and there are 10 teachers who train these children spiritually and academically .


For these 8 churches in Kisii District , they are led by 3 Pastors ;

1 . Pastor Enosh Anyona

2 . Pastor Fred Ogendo

3 . Pastor Joseph Nyaribo

Also we have other Laymen who are devoted to assist in our sister churches for effectiveness of God’s mission . For this work to reach all this level the CLC mission has done a lot in providing with Bibles, Lutheran Spokesmen, catechisms and many other books related to study God’s Word .

Because there are many people interested to study God’s work we decided under the guidance of the mission board to start a theological seminary in order to equip our men with God’s word . The school runs one week every month and up to now we have 10 students undertaking the studies and three teachers .


We ask God to guide us in His word so that we have many CLC churches in order for people to know God’s truth through the Bible , also to train enough young men who will be ready to go out for the ministry of God .

Pastor in charge.
