Rev Vance and Linda Becker - Serving the Lord in Kenya


Ephesians 5:1–2 – “Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us.” Our sanctification flows from the justification which we have received in Christ. His love for us transforms us into His image. This is why the Bible talks so much about giving — we are to imitate God in His generosity. If you want to walk in the footsteps of your Heavenly Father, seek mercy, kindness and open-handed generosity.

Life Message

“[W]e were made for light and life. God’s Word and Sacraments cast darkness aside in our lives; they draw us closer to Him and make us strong unto salvation … cling to the promises of Christ. May we recognize that we are blessed For Life even when we are surrounded by darkness, and may we in our darkest seasons, through the work of the Holy Spirit, lean toward the Son for light and for hope.” Michelle Bauman, Director of Y4Life - A Life Quote from Lutherans For Life
