Sunday 1st May was a very happy day as our Greater Lutheran South Sudanese Fellowships met together for the first time since the pandemic began. Pastor James Ruei from the Geelong Fellowship served alongside Pastor Peter Deng from the Frankston/Pakenham Fellowship, with Specific Ministry Pastor-in-training, Koang Nhial from the Dandenong Fellowship also leading. The youth and women’s groups sang as well. There was additional reason for rejoicing, as this was the first time the Greater Lutheran Fellowships met in the redeveloped St James Moorabbin worship centre – the home base for the Moorabbin-Dandenong congregation including its Nuer South Sudanese members who generally worship in rented premises at the Dandenong end of the congregation. A shared meal followed, with celebration of one young lady’s sixth birthday!
