Bishop Claire Burkat and Joanne Carlson have arrived safely in Tanzania. Their first full day in Tanzania they drove to the headquarters of the ELCT-North Eastern Diocese in Lushoto, Tanzania. When they arrived they were greeted by the leaders of the Diocese, members of the community and a full band! Please keep the Bishop and Joanne in prayer as they visit our companion synod.
