Agreement between Finland and Namibia updated

The General Synod approved the updated cooperation agreement between the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland and the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Namibia, further consolidating the Church's international relations.

The two churches have a long-standing relationship: Finland began missionary work in Namibia in 1870. Some of the contents of the agreement were out of date. The agreement was signed by Achbishop Tapio Luoma and Mr. Alpo Enkono, General Secretary of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Namibia.
