August 9th, 2009: It was a special Sunday for the Uhuru Highway Lutheran Cathedral – UHLC. A get-together-Sunday was organized to join both English and the Swahili congregation. A joint service was celebrated at 10am and after this a common meal was served to all participants. A drama team performed the story of The Ten Lepers and the English and the Swahili choirs sang.
Pastor Isaiah Obare was installed on that Sunday as 3rd Pastor at UHLC. – Pastor Isaiah was born in Nyamira District on September 17th 1979 to Bishop Walter Obare and Mrs. Eunice Obare. He is married to Caroline Awino and has two children: Rehema (not in the picture) and Ralph. He graduated at Matongo Lutheran Theological College, Kenya, in 2005; was ordained in 2006; served in the Sudan and at the Kakuma Refugee Camp in 2006; served as pastor in Kibera in 2007; studied at Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, Indiana in 2008/ 2009 and received his Master Degree in May/2009.

His father, Bishop Walter Obare Omwanza, installed Pastor Isaiah, with the assistance of Pastor Enos Omodhi, Pastor Carlos Walter Winterle
… the Elders, and several other pastors.
He preached about the healing of the ten lepers…
… and helped Bishop Obare as he celebrated the Lord’s Supper.
The pastors greeted the people at the end of the service…

… and all spent a nice Sunday together.
