So faith comes from hearing and hearing through the Word of Christ - Romans 10:17
Lutherans in Africa: Forming African Christains to be teachers of the faith.
There is a severe shortage of trained pastors in Africa. In America, the Lutheran Church has 1 pastor for every 376 members. In Tanzania, for instance, there is 1 pastor for every 3,500 members. By training Africans to be teachers of the faith, Lutherans In Africa (LIA) is able to help fill the need for pastors and further spread the Gospel, allowing God to work through His external Word.
