LTS representatives with Dr. Gard and friends from South Africa


The trip to the US provided a marvelous opportunity for Rector Winterle and Bishop Maragelo to meet with the folks at LEA (Lutheran Education Association), which is also active in South Africa, as well as with the President of CUC (Concordia University Chicago), Rev. Dr. Daniel Gard. The official meeting at CUC provided opportunity for formal exchange, while the dinner invitation afterward allowed for more informal interaction between the educators and churchmen. Besides Dr. Gard, LEA and CUC were represented by Dr. and Mrs. Laabs, Dr. and Mrs. Fischer, and Dr. and Mrs. Richter.
