The Sadness That Is ELCIN

[New Era]THE Evangelical Lutheran Church in Namibia (ELCIN), is an institution of Namibian society, having succeeded the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Owambo-Kavango (ELOK), which in turn succeeded the work of the Finnish Evangelical Lutheran Mission (FELM) when the first local church leader, Dr. Leonard Auala was consecrated as Bishop in 1963. After Bishop Auala retired, Bishop Emeritus Kleopas Dumeni assumed the helm in 1978 during a difficult time for the church and Namibians in general.
