Prof. Dr. Christian and Marlene Roschmann. He is Director – Rule of Law Program for Sub-Saharan Africa of the “Konrad Adenauer Stiftung”. He is from Germany and she is from Brazil; both speak Portuguese, which is good for Pastor and Mrs. Carlos to speak with them in their mother language. – They moved to Nairobi last January.


Pastor Charles and Anita were introduced in the last BLOG. But after this I received a nice e-mail from Pastor Charles, which I share with all:
"Rev. Charles Jackson and his wife Anita.Pastor in Arsim Samburu. Charles is originally from Alberta Canada andhad served there for 6 years before coming to Kenya in 2001. They startedwork by building a traditional cow dung house just North of Wamba to learnlanguage and culture for 8 months. Then they lived in Ngilae for the next 4years to work as a pastor and literacy teacher in the area. Since their coming back from furlough in 2006 they moved up to Arsim to help with thecongregation there as a Samburu pastor took over the congregation in Ngilae.Arsim is just the name of the area. It actually was known on the old mapsas the "Arsim Watering Hole", as it is a source of water even amidst thesevere droughts. In 1982 ELCK came to Arsim to start a church. Pastor BobWard and his wife Jeanne were the first workers with the ELCK in northern Samburu. Jeanne was also a nurse and started a small dispensary. It has grown into a regular dispensary reaching over 100 km radius from the Arsim Area.Anita: Is an Adult Literacy Teacher as well as Teaching English as a SecondLanguage for some of the Samburu women.

Let’s maintain them and all in our prayers.
