Through our prayers and designated financial support, we help send devoted missionaries and mercy workers out to tell others in both word and deeds the Good News about Jesus, and to strengthen our church partners in doing the same. The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) missionaries and mercy workers are funded entirely through the designated donations of God’s people who choose to give specifically for that purpose.
Rev. Mark and Stefanie Rabe serve the Lord as LCMS missionaries in Ethiopia. Mark teaches at Mekane Yesus Seminary in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. This seminary is dedicated to training faithful Lutheran pastors and other church workers to serve in Ethiopia. Mark and Stefanie have four beautiful children – Noah, Gabriella, Julianna and Matthias – who join them on the mission field.
Faith Lutheran Church has supported the Rabe family with prayers and financial support for many years. Our connection with them grew even stronger when Pastor Poock arrived, as he and Rev. Rabe attended seminary together and their families are close friends. May the Lord continue to bless the work of the Rabe family in Ethiopia.
