Archdeacon Victor Joseph Masangano from Tanzania, sends this message to the ICCEC.
Advent greetings and the peace of the Lord be with you. I pray all is well with you and the church family. See our photos below.
In the first photo the Bishop is ordaining the priests and the deacons, anointing them with oil. The next photo is a group photo, the Bishop with all the CEC priests in Malawi. The Bishop and myself are on the center. The next shows the newly ordained priests, standing in front of the Bishop, receiving their 2 Certificates each; 1 for Sacred Vows, and the other one for Ordination. The next photo the newly priests (ordinands) are standing in front of the Bishop. The congregation is seated. The Bishop is using the Episcopal Service Liturgy leading the ordination service, and I was assisting him translating in our language, Chichewa.
The last photo the Bishop on a group photo together with the priests, myself, and the ladies in their uniform. Behind is a shelter thatched with grass. That is Mlangali CEC congregation that the Bishop conducted the service on Sunday, October 29, 2019.
May God bless you.
In Christ and love,
