Lutheran team in Germany

Evangelical Lutheran Church of Papua New Guinea general secretary Isaac Teo heads a four-man ELCPNG delegation which is currently in Germany.

The team, which left for Germany on Monday this week, comprises of Mr Teo, Pr Kinim Siloi of inter-church ecumenism at ELCPNG headquarters at Ampo in Lae, Siassi district president Joshua Max and youth co-ordinator Peter Konga.

They will spend three weeks in Germany and a week at Lutheran World Federation headquarters in Switzerland.

“The purpose of my trip is to strengthen relationships with our partners,” Mr Teo said before leaving for Germany.

“The other thing I will be doing is visiting the LWF in Geneva, Switzerland.

“Our visit to LWF will portray a good image of the country.

“We’re going to have a very tight schedule, one in which it will also be an opportunity to meet with former missionaries who used to work in PNG.”

Mr Teo said Siassi district president Mr Max would use the opportunity to establish contacts before Siassi celebrates 100 years of Lutheran presence in April 2011.

The team returns to PNG at the end of July.
