Missions and Missionaries
ORPHAN GRAIN TRAIN
Through Sunday School offerings and fundraisers, Peace Lutheran supports the mission of Orphan Grain Train.In
loving response to Christ, the Servant, the Orphan Grain Train movement encourages and enables Godís people to
share personal and material resources in bringing Christís name and character to needy people both far and near.
Sometimes that character expresses itself as a word well- spoken, sometimes as a bandage well-applied, and
sometimes as a child well-fed. For more information on this precious ministry, visit Orphan Grain Train at:

OUR MISSIONARIES
Rev. Stuart and Debra Freese serve the Lord and the LCMS as missionaries in Ghana and other countries in
West Africa. Pastor Freese will be a church planter and will help to train and equip the saints in this part of the
world. Deb, with her gift of a great commincation background, will be working with our missionaries as Area
Commincation Director for West Africa. Both Pastor and Deb grew up in the Plymouth, NE area. Their home
congregation is Our Redeemer Lutheran in Wahoo, NE. They served the Lord as missionaries in Colombia, South
America from 1987 to 1992 with the Wisconsin Synod. In 1992 they were called to a congregation in Columbus,
NE. In 1995 they became members of the LCMS. The Freeses have also worked in a wide variety of government
and private organizations. In 2015 Pastor Freese completed his colloquy with the LCMS and spoken in many area
churches in the Eastern Nebraska area. Both have been very involved in Sunday school, Bible classes,
confirmation classes, and other church activities. Pastor Freese received his undergraduate degree from
Northwestern College in Watertown, WI and his Mastor of Divinity from Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary at Mequon,
WI. Deb has her Bachelor's and Master's Degrees from Bellevue University in Bellevue, NE. They have been
blessed with two children: Alicia, who has lived in several locations, is a Sergeant in the Marine Corps. Caleb,
who lives in Weston, NE, is a Camp Counselor. They were both adopted while the Freeses were serving in
Colombia. The Freese also have a granddaughter, Elenor. The family loves to fish, hint, and camp. Deb is also
involved in crafting and photography.
Sarah Kanoy has been called as a Career Missionary to serve the Lord as teacher and community health nurse to
the people of Kenya East Africa. Sarah was raised in the areas of Daykin and Arlington, NE, where she, along
with her parents, Pastor Rick and Cheryl Kanoy, and her brothers, Josh and Jonah, served the Lord. After
completing high school, she attended Northwestern College in Orange City, Iowa where she began working in the
Intensive Care Unit Mercy Medical Center in Sioux City, Iowa. Following this, Sarah served in the Intensive Care
Unit of Creighton University Medical Center in Omaha, NE from 2013 to the present time. Sarah's greatest love,
however, has always been the Lord's mission field. Mission trips to Tanzania and Kenya in 2010, 2011 and 2015
have helped her develop a passion for sharing Jesus through medical outreach and teaching with the poorest of
the poor people in Africa. In her work experience, she has learned how to share the love of Christ by providing
compassionate physical, emotional, and spiritual care to her patients and their families. She will be working with
our LCMS missionaries as they reach out with the Good News of our dear Lord to people, who have never heard
the name of our Savior.
