We just received word through Brother of John the Steadfast Jon Townsend that Bishop Andrew Elisa has been called to heaven. There is very little information at this time. You can check the Lutheran Heritage website for updates. We learned of this through a personal e-mail to Jon. As of the posting of this article the LHF website did not have the news posted yet.
Please pray for the Lutheran Church in Sudan. This is a great loss for them.
Jon had just posted last week on the bishop’s failing health.
