Installation Service

On August 17th we were officially installed into the ministry of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Southern Africa as Country Coordinators of the Young Adults in Global Mission program of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. The worship took place in Applesbosch, located in the province of KwaZulu-Natal.

The worship service was led by South Eastern Diocese Bishop Louis Sibya, and the installation by ELCSA General Secretary Bheki Mathe. The service was attended by various pastors, congregation leaders, and ELCSA members from throughout the area. As you can imagine, Kristen and I were honored to have been welcomed in such a profound way.

Please continue to pray for this cooperative effort between the ELCA and the Lutheran Church here in South Africa.

With love,

Brian & Kristen
