In the ELCC there are 27 pastors serving 1063 souls divided into three districts.  It was not possible to go easily to the unstable countryside, so the discussions were held again in Kinahasa with Pastor Muzakuza and his two preachers in Kinshasa.  The desire of a declaration of fellowship was sent by letter to the CLC.  Many problems in getting materials to them and translated and duplicated were worked on.  There continued a clear willingness to abide by the Word in all matters commanded or forbidden.  The original and a second congregation in Kinshasa were visited by the missionary.
