LTS faculty members Rev. Mbongeni John Nkambule was able to attend the symposium recently held on the campus of our American sister seminary, Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, IN. Rev. Nkambule is also currently enrolled in the Ph.D. program at CTS. Having completed his required courses, this trip enabled Rev. Nkambule to take and pass his comprehensive examinations. He is now busy putting together his dissertation proposal. Once accepted, he will embark on the final stage of his studies – writing the doctoral dissertation.

In addition, the trip made it possible for Rev. Nkambule to receive books generously donated for LTS students by LCMS Disaster Relief and by the Office of President Matthew Harrison. Rev. Nkambule was willing to transport the books to the LTS in his personal luggage. He will be teaching the class on Diakonia (mercy work) to LTS students this semester for which the books were needed.

Thank you to all donors and to Rev. Nkambule for his gallant transportation efforts!
