Hope Clergy and South African Deaconesses

It was a great honor yesterday to welcome to Hope two deaconess students from South Africa. Nancy and Esther are students of Dcs. Grace Rao as they learn to serve in the Lutheran Church of South Africa. What a great way to celebrate Pentecost with the Gospel of Jesus' death and resurrection uniting us and bringing us together from our respective nations!

Grace took this picture of our honored guests with clergy from Hope, St. Louis, MO, USA.
