ELCA Global Mission gathered Lutheran Church leaders in Latin America and companion ELCA synods in North America for the 2013 “United in Mission, Transformed by Faith” International Consultation, held in Bogotá, Colombia, on November 14-18.
Seventy leaders from sixteen countries, including representatives from our companions in Peru, were present for this four-day event, which included times of worship, devotions and Bible study, presentations on the contexts of God’s mission in the Americas and on themes of sustainability and accompaniment, and small group discussions and work sessions among companions. Peggy Hahn and Vonda Drees participated on behalf of the Gulf Coast Synod.
