January 2019

Missionary Ohlmann spent two weeks in Tanzania. Along with Pastor Issangya and Mshana, he met with a group of independent pastor in Mwanza who are interested in joining the CLC-TZ. They spent two days discussing the doctrinal positions of the CLC and also visited three congregations. While in Arusha Missionary Ohlmann met with the faculty of the newly established Wartburg Lutheran Seminary to discuss curriculum, finances, prospective students, and class schedules. The seminary will begin classes with eight students in February.

Missionary Ohlmann also had the opportunity to visit an independently run orphanage near Arusha to discuss the possibility of future CLC-Kinship support.

Meetings were also held in Moshi with the pastors and lay-leaders of the CLC-TZ congregations in the Kilimanjaro district.
