Mission Contact in Zimbabwe
Our internet website has proven to be a valuable means of spreading the word worldwide of our Christian fellowship and teachings. From time to time we receive inquiries from other countries. Some of the contacts have developed into establishing fellowship relations and joint mission work, while others have not progressed very far.
Missionary Ude and Pastor Ohlmann will be traveling to Zimbabwe in southern Africa to meet with Pastor Apostle Liberty Atawa who is one of those promising contacts. Pastor Atawa first made contact with us via the internet in October 2010, making an appeal for us to partner with his religious organization in spreading the gospel in that region of the world. Their church group is involved in Prison Evangelism, Hospital Evangelism, and in Crusades which they hold in rural areas. Pastor Atawa heads up this organization which has a number of evangelists under his supervision.
In response to Pastor Atawa’s appeal, we informed him that it is important for them to know and agree with the confessional teachings of the C.L.C. Pastor Atawa agreed to go through the Bible course of “Shadows and Substance,” a course produced by President John Schierenbeck for adult instruction. Pastor Atawa in turn went through the material with his fellow workers. Upon completion of this Bible course the CLC Board of Missions decided to send representatives to have face to face meetings in order to determine if there is doctrinal unity between us.
