Rev. Jonathan Fisk to Host a Live, Worldwide Prayer Vigil for the Lutherans in Africa Capital Campaign, by Pr. Rossow

Lutherans in Africa - LiA Building FoundationsThe Vigil for Africa will be a live, worldwide event involving as many congregations as possible in a single worship service. Join us in prayer for the future of Christianity in Africa through a live Youtube stream, and together hear from Pastor May in Nairobi on the current state of Lutherans in Africa.

This event will stream live via Youtube from Bethany Lutheran Church in Naperville, IL where, for the first hour, where we will pray the same prayers, hear the same Bible texts. This will be followed by an hour long interview with James May, live from Nairobi, Africa in which he will share details about the new Lutheran Center that is being built in Africa to bring the Lutheran faith to more and more people.

Your church is invited to participate in the vigil. To learn more about the vigil go to our Facebook page.
