Meet Us

Rev. Mike and Kara Kuhn

The Kuhns come to LBTC from Calgary, where Pastor Mike was serving as Associate
Pastor along with Kara’s father. From the beginning they shared interest in Bible translation,
and later on Mike enrolled in the linguistics programme at Trinity Western University in Langley B.C.
The Kuhns were deployed to Cameroon to work with the Nizaa people, and in their short time in Galim
they have made good progress. God has blessed the Kuhns and their team with some wonderful
discoveries of translation work that had already been done. Mike hopes to bring some Bible to publication very soon.

The Kuhns have four children, Tobias, Gideon, Gloria, and Jubilee.

Michaela Federwitz

As the granddaughter and daughter of Lutheran Bible Translators missionaries in West Africa, Michaela Federwitz grew up with a heart for missions.

Having spent the better part of 17 years in Ghana as a missionary kid, Michaela learned the importance of building strong relationships.
“The best thing about being a missionary kid is that I have friends from all over the world. Not just in one country!”
Following her graduation from Saint Paul Lutheran High School in May of 2021, Michaela will serve as a nanny to Rev. Mike and Kara Kuhn’s children in Cameroon, West Africa.
“I have always loved children for as long as I can remember. It brings me so much joy to work with them and give parents a little break. It will be a new experience for me, and I am excited to go back to Africa and do what I love!”
Please include Michaela in your prayers as she prepares for her first journey into the mission field on her own..

Please also consider designating an LBTC donation for Michaela’s service as the Kuhn’s nanny.
Get better acquainted with Michaela by listening to her LBT US podcast
