Just got this message from Pastor Kern in SID i.e. the South Illinois District of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod:
Attached, you will find the report of Dean Mafereka’s trip to the Southern Illinois District. We were delighted that he was able to come see us, and excited to be able to share with him in fellowship and in providing insight into some of our ongoing ministries. Thank you for allowing him to share in that. Here is the report: Report on Dean Mafereka’s Travels
God’s grace to you and the people of the Lutheran Church of Southern Africa, as you prepare for your convention. We pray that the power of the Holy Spirit may be with you, even now as the time nears.
In His grace,
Rev. David Kern
Chairman of the Southern Africa Mission Task Force
Be glad in the Lord, and rejoice , O righteous, and shout for joy, all you upright in heart!
