Mission of the Month

Mission of the Month

King of Kings is blessed to engage in deep and meaningful Missions ministry. From companion congregations in Tanzania and Honduras, to a food shelf and community support organizations in Minnesota, we walk with more than 15 partners as we all strive to spread the Good News and share the Kingdom of God with all creation. This year, we will lift up one of our mission partners each month to explore their work & ministry, reflect on our partnership together, and learn how we can engage more fully in accompanying one another for the glory of God.

January: ELCA Global Mission – Missionary support

ELCA Global Mission supports 121 missionaries in 45 countries. For more than 25 years, King of Kings has supported Dr. Mark and Linda Jacobson in their work in the medical field in Tanzania. In 2021, we began supporting Daudi and Kellen Msseemmaa, who work as regional representatives in East Africa.

  • Daudi and Kellen Msseemmaa serve as Regional Representatives in East Africa. Their work includes connecting with Lutheran churches throughout the region and developing relationships between the ELCA and our partners.
  • Mark and Linda Jacobson have served as ELCA missionaries for more than 30 years, working to improve healthcare in Tanzania. They were instrumental in developing and building Arusha Lutheran Medical Center, a hospital in Arusha, Tanzania. King of Kings has supported Mark and Linda in their dedicated work for many years, we now walk with them as they transition toward retirement.
