In October, a small group from the SW MN Synod will visit our partners in South Africa.   

Please keep our visitors from the ELCSA-SED and outgoing group from the SW MN Synod in your prayers as they prepare, travel, and build new and nurture existing relationships among our church bodies and members. 

These relationships are rooted in “accompaniment,” which promotes the values of mutuality, inclusivity, vulnerability, empowerment, and sustainability. Through the program, companion churches and ELCA synods nurture and strengthen one another for life and ministry through prayer, study, communication, exchange of visitors, and sharing of resources.
