A MESSAGE FROM PASTOR SOUK
One of the African missions supported through the Christ for Africa Mission Auction is the seminary in Togo. In this video, Pastor Souk, the director of the seminary, is thanking Trinity Freistadt and all those who take part in the Mission Auction for our great support of the seminary. He thanks us for making it possible for four students to continue their studies. Three of those students are from the Ivory Coast, and one is from Burkina Faso. Soho Hubert is doing his vicarage in Bakoubli, Ivory Coast. Glon Anatole is doing his vicarage in Toulepleu, Ivory Coast. Tade Edmond has left the seminary for personal reasons. Grogoh Amadou is doing his vicarage in Burkina Faso. Pastor Souk thanks us again for the generous gifts that made it possible for these men to pursue their pastoral formation. He thanks us for supporting confessional Lutheranism in Africa by contributing to the work of the seminary. Pastor Souk also talks about the need for dormitories. Right now the seminary students stay in various parts of town and have had trouble with Muslim neighbors. The seminary hopes to build houses on campus for the students. It costs about $8,000 to build one house. Having the students together will make it easier for members of the seminary community to spend time with each other and to help each other grow in the faith. Pastor Souk thanks us for our support of the dormitory program and asks us to continue. The dormitory program also includes building a home for the dean of students and bringing water and electricity to the area. Pastor Souk has given us blueprints of the dormitory project. He wishes us a blessed Easter Season.
