Missionary Ohlmann visited Togo for 2 1/2 weeks. He spent time reviewing Scripture and Lutheran doctrine with the four students who had been training with Pastor Kossi and Missionaries Koenig and Ude for the past seven years. At the end of this visit these four men were ordained as Lutheran pastors of the MELCT and appointed as pastors to serve congregations.

The Mt. Horeb Lutheran Bible Institute was officially dedicated and seven new men were welcomed to begin their studies to prepare to be faithful preachers and teachers of God’s saving word.

Kinship began support of the “Children in Need” program that offers both physical and spiritual aid to impoverished children in the area around the local congregation in Lome’. Kinship also began support of orphaned children being cared for by Pastor Kossi and other pastors of the MELCT. And Kinship began offering support for six Bible institute students.
