Dear LTS Friends,

The Lutheran Theological Seminary in Tshwane, Pretoria, South Africa, is happy to present to you the most recent LTS Newsletter for 2019! Please find it attached. A particular highlight is the graduation that happened last week. We thank Prof. Karl Böhmer for preparing the newsletter.

The time has come to bid farewell to Dr. Karl Böhmer, who has taken up a calling with the Congregation of Christ, Kirchdorf in Wartburg, KwaZulu Natal.  Our sincerest gratitude for all the hard work and effort that Dr. Böhmer has so selflessly put into the smooth running of the Seminary.  He will be sorely missed by myself, the staff and all the students.  We would like to take this opportunity to wish Dr. Böhmer and his family all the very best in his new calling.

We thank you for your support and prayers. By God’s grace and with your help, the LTS was able to complete this academic year. We are now planning for the next year, as we will begin with a new curriculum for the new students. Pray for all the plans and challenges.

Encourage your friends, your church, and your family to support the LTS. We have also a list of projects that need to be done, some of them as requirements for accreditation. Let us know if you want to receive this list of projects and the respective quotes. We will willingly provide you with same.

You are welcome to send your donation straight to the LTS, or via one of our partners/supporters:

In Germany: Lutherische Kirchenmission, LKM.

In the USA:  Saint Philip Lutheran Mission Society, SPLMS; and LCMS OIM

In South Africa: Mission of the Lutheran Churches, MLC.

Go to the LTS website: https://www.lts.ac.za, and click on: SUPPORT LTS. There you will find all the details on how to send your donation. Also, see below the bank details of some of our international partners.

If you prefer to send your donation directly to the LTS, please be sure to write the name of the account holder in full: Lutheran Theological Seminary in Tshwane NPC. The LTS bank (ABSA) will not receive international wires without the entire name.

We wish you all a blessed Thanksgiving Day, and may God be with you as we are beginning to celebrate Advent: Emmanuel = God with us!

Regards.

Carlos Walter Winterle, Rector
