The Uhuru Highway Lutheran Church in Nairobi, Kenya.

This morning before leaving for the United States, there was an opportunity to meet with the leadership of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Kenya (ELCK).

The discussion was primarily one of gratitude to the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod for providing assistance and expertise to complete Ibada Takatifu (Divine Service). It also was mentioned how much the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Tanzania (ELCT) provided in terms of hymnody and translation expertise, as well as copyright permissions.

Another area of the discussion focused on the necessity of theological education so that in the future the ELCK would have its own expertise to undertake such projects in the future.

The trip to Ethiopia, Tanzania, Ghana, and Kenya have been incredibly to better understand the state of Lutheranism in Africa.

Bon voyage.
