On April 4, 2000 Pastor Jesse Angowi sent his inquiry about the CLC to Prof. Pfeiffer at ILC. Since the missionary was going to Kenya for meetings with the Etago people at the end of April, an email was sent to Pastor Angowi of the Lutheran Church of East Africa inviting him to come to the meetings at Nairobi, Kenya. Due to God’s blessing of email and its speed, the meeting took place. The LCEA had withdrawn from the large Lutheran church in Tanzania over its liberalism, the last straw being the ordination of women. At the time of the meeting in Nairobi, their church was two and a half years old. They are registered in Tanzania.
