I Do Choose. Be Made Clean!

A leper came to him begging him, and kneeling he said to him, ‘If you choose, you can make me clean.’ Moved with pity, Jesus stretched out his hand and touched him, and said to him, ‘I do choose. Be made clean!’ Immediately the leprosy left him, and he was made clean.

Guest Post: Greetings from Roger and Trish Blomquist - Month 2

The following post comes to Christ the King from Roger and Trish Blomquist. The Blomquists are serving for three months in Tanzania. Please check back often for more updates from the Blomquists and continue to offer your prayers for them, Tanzania, and the Nduli Parish.

 

It’s hard to believe that we have been here a little over a month as time has flown by.  We have had very busy schedules with lots of people here from the St. Paul Area Synod and we have reconnected with so many of our Tanzanian friends that we have met over the years.Read More
