American Pastors and Churches Support Bishop Asiago.
Bishop Thomas Asiago is being welcomed to America in October of 2015 by several Lutheran pastors and congregations. He is the Bishop of the Southwest Diocese of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Kenya (ELCK) and was recently elected presiding bishop for the entire church body although the former presiding bishop does not accept his election.
The pastors in America are showing support for him and listening to him talk about the problems in his church in Kenya. (You can click here to read about the election.)
The Lutheran Church Missouri Synod is a sister church of the ELCK. Many of its members are in the midwest region of the United States and so the Bishop Asiago visiting churches, pastors and bishops in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Missouri, Iowa and Nebraska.
