Bishop Israel Peter Mwakyolile and his wife, Pastor Ngulonda, from the Konde Diocese of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Tanzania were here last week to participate in the installation of the new bishop for Lutherans in central PA.  He stayed a little longer to meet and greet partners in mission, renew friendships, encourage others to join in God’s work there and, of course, to do a little shopping.

Anne and I had the joy of hosting these wonderful folks for a few days.  Our daughter-in-law, Jackieraye, created a certificate of appreciation for the bishop to present to the individuals and groups who have helped send almost three-quarters of a million dollars in technology, books, hospital equipment and even an electronic organ for the people of his region and the institutions for which he is responsible.

Saying “thanks” is always important.  Giving thanks to God is foundational.  Giving this unique certificate to dozens of colleagues in the work of the Lord is overwhelming.  Enjoy these pictures.  Be embraced by the smiles and humbled by the tears.  Thanks to all who continue to give.
