We welcome Rev. Fernando Huf as new lecturer at our seminary. Rev. Huf is an LCMS alliance missionary from Brazil. Apart from teaching at LTS, he also serves as the Area Facilitator of Southern Africa for the LCMS International Mission. Rev Huf arrived in South Africa with his wife Magda and two daughters in July. They are here on a short term visa and we are praying that they will be able to stay much longer, as Rev Huf is a wonderful addition to our faculty.
