Help Support Our AFLC Missionaries in:


Nate and Rhoda and their children are AFLC missionaries to Africa.  Nate and Rhoda began the work in the fall of 2006. The first year was spent studying the language and culture and building relationships. They continue by ministering to the people and working with the training of pastors and leaders of the churches.

Prayer Concerns:

Wisdom for us in training and raising our boys to be men of God.

For protection, daily walks with the Lord

For unity and selflessness between us

For a great harvest of souls

For good health


Pastor Todd and Barb Schierkolk and their three daughters served in Aguascalientes from 1996 to 2000. After a one-year furlough and a half year serving as the Director of MTI (Mission Training Institute) at AFLBS, they returned to Mexico. The Schierkolks are now serving in Jerez, Zacatecas, Mexico.

Prayer Concerns:

  • Pray for spiritual growth of youth/kid's club and for the families of the children that they would be open to the gospel.
  • Pray for Pastor Ricardo who is now ministering in Aguascalientes.
  • For God's wisdom & open doors regarding the purchase of land for a church.
  • Health of our family

First Lutheran Church is organizing a mission trip to Naknek, AK for the summer of 2018.  Exact dates cannot be provided until early 2018 since we will need to work with the local teams on scheduling.  Following is some general information.   We will schedule meetings with more information for those interested as the time comes nearer.

What would we do there?

We have heard a great deal recently about the Alaska mission of the AFLC.  Volunteers are needed each summer to help run The Net, a coffee house ministry for the thousands of seasonal workers in the area.  Work would include baking cookies, making coffee, cleaning up, visiting with people from all over the world and sharing Christ’s love.

Where would we stay and how long would we be there?

Food and lodging are provided, although donations are accepted and appreciated.  We would be responsible for the preparation and clean up of all meals.  The length of our mission would be 1 week.  With travel time it is probably best to plan for 10 days.

How will we get there?

Naknek can only be accessed by plane or boat.  We would fly to Anchorage than take a smaller plane to King Salmon where we would be picked up and driven to Naknek.

How much will it cost?

Currently, the cost of an airline ticket from OKC to King Salmon is approximately $1200 round trip.  We are also suggesting a donation of $50 per day/ per person for food and lodging.

      Airfare    $1200

      Food & Lodging       $350

      Med evac Insurance       $125(optional)

      Spending money    $200 - $400

      Total – minimum    $1875   

Please prayerfully consider this opportunity to serve God and the AFLC Home Missions Department.  If you decide you would like to go please contact Scott Schauer at 405-834-7552 or by email (best contact).
