Cameroon Companion Synod Bishop, Dr. Ruben Ngozo (newly elected) is visiting the MNO Synod.

Last Thursday, April 10, we received word that a Canadian visitor visa had finally been granted for him to visit us during the MNO Synod Convention,
He arrived in Winnipeg on Wednesday, April 16, will attend Holy Week services in a few of our congregations, will meet with our Companion Synod committee, visit the National Church offices, meet with three conference ministerials, and preach (through an interpreter) at a couple of our congregations.

Besides being a special guest at our convention and having an opportunity to visit some of our ministries in the MNO, the main purpose of the visit
will focus on establishing the priorities for our ongoing Companion Synod partnership. Thank you for you support of Mission as Hope, which has made this visit possible.

Three special opportunities to meet Bishop Ngozo/hear him speak are:
1) Special Address at Synod Convention, Friday, April 25, 7:00 p.m. at Epiphany Lutheran Church, 200 Dalhousie Dr, Winnipeg
2) Bilingual Closing Service at Synod Convention- Saturday, April 26, 4:00 p.m. at Epiphany Lutheran (Bishop Susan Johnson preaching, Bishop Ngozo presiding)
3) A Men's Breakfast, Saturday, May 10, at 9:00 a.m. at St, Mark's Lutheran, 600 Cambridge St., Winnipeg. (We ask that one person from each congregation poll the men from your congregation, and RSVP the numbers to St, Mark's office 204.452.4326 by May 8)
