Molly Christensen

Serving the Lord in Togo



Molly Christensen serves the Lord through The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) as a missionary in Togo. Molly is coordinating the opening of a medical clinic for the Centre Luthérien d’Etudes Théologiques (CLET), or Lutheran Center for Theological Studies, in Dapaong, Togo. CLET is the seminary of the Lutheran Church of Togo (ELT). Once the clinic is opened, she will serve as the nurse for the seminary students and their families. Molly also provides community health education to the women’s school and to the local villages. Moreover, she supports LCMS Mercy Medical Teams as they engage in mercy work in the French-speaking countries.

Molly’s hometown is Chariton, Iowa. She is a member of Holy Cross Lutheran Church, Carlisle, Iowa. She received a bachelor’s degree in nursing from Upper Iowa University. She worked as a registered nurse on the Mother Baby Unit at Mercy Hospital, Des Moines, Iowa, before serving in Africa. For seven years, Molly was a member of the Iowa Air National Guard (2007-2014). In her free time, she enjoys quilting, reading, journaling and traveling.


Pray for Molly as she serves in Togo. Ask God to fill her with strength and peace as she transitions to working and living overseas, adjusting to the culture and learning a new language. Pray that God gives her the experience and skills necessary to meet the needs of the people she is serving. Ask God to help her demonstrate mercy and grace as she loves the people and cares for them and their needs. Pray that the people she serves come to know Christ as their Savior and cling to the hope of the Gospel. Ask God to strengthen Molly’s heart to do the work He has created for her to do in His kingdom. Let us give thanks to God that Molly is serving His children in this part of the world.
