Description “5 Centuries: The Wends and the Reformation” is a gorgeous, hard cover book featuring 19 articles and beautiful full-color photographs on subjects connecting the Wends to their significant impact on the Lutheran church at large.

These pioneers sent letters home, many of which were published in local newspapers, and which influenced Wends still in Europe. A small group of Wends came to Austin County around –50 and were quickly absorbed into the German community. In a group of thirty-five Wends left Bremen for Texas.

Rev. Kilian was a scholar and prolific writer who translated from German into Wendish many books, such as Luther’s Large Catechism and the Augsburg Confession.

He also wrote Wendish prayer books, sermons, and tracts, as well as hymns and poems. The largest number migrated to Texas, where at Serbin, under the leadership of pastor Jan Kilian, they formed a Wendish community, retaining their own language in church, school, and home.

I’m working on an extensive timeline chronicling the history of the communities and congregations of the Wends in Texas to go along with my upcoming book, Wendish Lutherans in Sam Houston’s Texas. It’s a work in progress, but there’s already a lot of information there.

The Wends immigrated over to Texas on a small boat less than feet long named the Ben Nevis. There was about people stuffed on this boat where they would stay for about 3 months at sea and another month at dock quarantined for illnesses in On my maternal grandma's side, members from her daddy's and mother's side were on this boat.

This is the story of the Wends - an immigrant group that redefines the word endurance. It's no mystery that they have nearly disappeared - the mystery is how they ever survived the hardships of. Book Coming Soon Wendish Lutherans in Sam Houston’s Texas will tell the story of the first fifty years of the Wends in Texas with historical sketches and photographs of the churches and communities they settled.
