October 2002

A visitation was finally carried out in south Katanga centered in Lubumbashi, by the missionary.  This being the first visit to the area where the bulk of the ELCC congregations are, there was much to be reported.  The church’s head, Pastor Muzakuza, with aid from the CLC, is working to train his pastors through visits, classes and printed material.  Catechists are being trained to teach the catechism.  A translation committee is working on translating confessional Lutheran statements.
