Rev. Dr. Walter and Robyn Steele

Serving the Lord in Kenya


 

Bio

Rev. Dr. Walter and Robyn Steele serve the Lord through The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) in Kenya. Walter teaches at Matongo Lutheran Theological College in Kenya. In addition to teaching, he preaches in the College’s chapel, counsels students and preaches in local Kenyan congregations when requested.

Walter earned his Master of Divinity from Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, Ind.; a Master of Theology (Pastoral Care) degree from Princeton Theological Seminary, Princeton, N.J.; a Master of Sacred Theology (Old Testament) degree from Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, Ind.; and a Ph.D. (Exegeting Theology and Culture) degree from Concordia Seminary, St. Louis. Walter is a 16-year United States Navy veteran, having served as a Navy and Marine Corps chaplain from 1997-2005. Before becoming a missionary, he also served as pastor at three LCMS congregations and taught for a short time at Jonathan Ekong Memorial Seminary in Nigeria. Walter’s hobbies include gardening and doing yard work, roasting coffee, reading, writing and pretending to play the ukulele.

Robyn earned a bachelor’s degree in dietetics from New Mexico State University, Las Cruces. Prior to serving in Africa, she worked as a dietitian in local hospitals and care facilities, and as a nursing home inspector. Robyn’s hobbies include sewing, gardening, quilting and lacto fermentation. Walter and Robyn have two married adult children and four grandchildren.

Prayers

Pray for Walter and Robyn as they serve in Kenya. Pray for a smooth transition and for cultural sensitivity. Ask God to give Walter strength and peace as he begins to learn how to teach in this new culture and environment. Ask God to continue to be with Walter and Robyn as they make new friends and work as a team with the others at the college. Pray they find creative ways to stay in touch with and involved in the lives of their children and grandchildren. Pray that Walter and Robyn’s support-raising period is a time in which congregations experience the joy of hearing how God is working mightily in Kenya and East Africa. Let us give thanks to God that the Steeles are serving His children in Kenya.

The Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod Inc., including Mission Central (in Mapleton, Iowa), is an IRS registered 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity.

A contribution designated (restricted) for a specific purpose when accepted, will be used only to fund expenses related to that purpose. Occasionally, we may receive more in contributions for a particular purpose than can be wisely applied to it in the foreseeable future or the purpose may cease to be feasible. In these situations, the LCMS will make reasonable attempts to contact contributors to apply their contribution differently. If a contributor cannot be contacted, the LCMS will use the gift to meet a similar pressing need that most closely matches the contributor's original intent.  Consistent with Synod Board policy, no more than 12 percent of a charitable contribution may be applied to administering gifts and communicating with contributors.  Contributions received and accepted by the LCMS are deemed to be in agreement with this statement.

Our Tax Identification Number is: 43-0658188
