The LTS considers itself very fortunate and privileged in having not just one, but two very capable and faithful visiting professors teach intensive classes this quarter. Besides Prof. Dr. John T. Pless, the seminary also welcomes Prof. Dr. Thomas V. Aadland, LCMS missionary and seminary teacher in Matongo, Kenya. Dr. Aadland is teaching a two-week course on the Gospel of John. After initially receiving the news that he would not be permitted to travel internationally for health reasons, we are most grateful to the Lord of the church for the last minute release of Dr. Aadland with a clean bill of health, such that he was able to travel and to join us at LTS after all. Welcome, Dr. Aadland! We pray your teaching will be of great blessing to students and visitors alike as you dig into the texts of the Scriptures.
