Wycliffe Research Professor Elected Bishop in Tanzania
Tuesday April 27th, 2010
On April 7th, 2010, in just one round, 77 out of 79 members of the special electoral synod voted for the Rev. Canon Dr. Mwita Akiri to become the first Bishop of the new Diocese of Tarime. The Bishop-Elect and his family are more than humbled.
Please pray for him and his family as they prepare to take on their new responsibility.
Dr. Akiri will be consecrated on Sunday July 4th, when Principal George Sumner will be the preacher.
The Rev. Canon Dr. Mwita Akiri is Research Professor of African Theology at Wycliffe College.
