Rev. Robert and Kristi Roegner | Israel
The Roegners (affiliated with Apple of His Eye) are the latest addition to our missionary giving. They made their way to Israel last year and since COVID hit, have been hampered like most missionaries to reach out in person to the mission field. One blessing is that Rev. Roegner has been assigned as head pastor of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Jaffa, Israel. If you are interested on the activities and worship services for the church, please access their website: www.immanuelchurch-jaffa.com.
They do zoom services and stay connected with Israeli’s who have shown a curiosity about Jesus and Christianity. Rev. Roegner encourages their attending one on one zoom sessions as well as their services. Their in-person worship services are limited similarly to ours at Shepherd, but zoom is encouraged when necessary.
Please pray for Rev.Roegner and Kristi that when the pandemic eases they are able to open up to more believers and those searching for a Savior that loves his flock.
In addition, God willing, the Roegners will be visiting Shepherd August 14 - 15 of this year where we can learn more about their important ministry. To learn more about his ministry, click HERE.
Missionaries across the globe need our fervent prayers more than ever. Many of them are quarantined and not able to provide fully to the people most in need. Some are providing online support to their students, their congregations and their staff, while others cannot provide online support due to the poverty in their region. Many of the missionaries highlight how the COVID pandemic has affected them.
