Message from Bishop Ivan Laptev:
African mission complete!
1. Reinstatement of the ELCIR as a voting member of the International Lutheran Council.
2. Presentation of The Evangelical Lutheran Church in Israel. (There, too, I was installed in the ministry of bishop.)
3. Election of a new ILC chairman. Cordial congratulations to our dear brother in Christ Bishop Juhana Pohjola of the Mission Diocese of Finland on his election to this important position!
