Carl & Kelsey Grulke Family
Carl and Kelsey Grulke serve as missionaries with Lutheran Bible Translators (LBT) in Botswana, where they work to translate the New Testament into 2 of the 31 different languages that are spoken there. There are more than 180 million people around the world who do not have access to God’s Word in their own language and the Grulkes are helping to change that fact, working alongside mother tongue translators to bring God’s Word to life in the minority languages of Botswana for the first time. To find out more specifics about their ministry or to follow their journey, check out their website at thegrulkes.org or their Facebook group The Grulkes’ LBT Adventure.

Thank You from the Grulke Family
Dear Friends at Christ Lutheran Church,
Thank you so much for your kind gift in support of our ministry with Lutheran Bible Translators. It means so much to us to have the prayers and support of our church family back in Lincoln as we prepare for work and life overseas. We give thanks to God for you all!
In Him,
Carl & Kelsey Grulke

The Hope Center Uganda is an orphanage and school in Uganda, Africa located in the Mityana District. The need for a registered orphanage and school was so great, that the Director and her family left everything and everyone they knew in the United States to care for the children of Mityana. We have a wonderful relationship with local police, which enables us to receive many of the children who are orphaned, abandoned, or abused. We provide love, care, and Christian education to almost 30 children at the orphanage. Our primary goal is for a child to be reunited with their family or relatives whenever safely possible. This may take time, or in some cases be impossible in which case we will continue to care for the child. The Hope Center School also provides a Christian education to village children at a very minimal cost. The meal they receive at school can, in many cases, be the only meal they receive all day.

In addition to the orphanage and school, The Hope Center also has a village medical outreach ministry in which we go into surrounding villages and help with deworming, education against jiggers, and helping with basic hygiene and medical needs.
