Fitting farewell after a decade of service

Lae News, Normal

SAINT Paul Lutheran Church in Lae – one of the largest urban parishes of the Evangelical Lutheran church – yesterday bid farewell to its long-serving pastor, Rev Butu Asunu.
Pr Butu presided over the St Paul Parish for the past 10 years.
He will now go on leave for 12 months before being assigned to new duties in the church in 2011.
He conducted his final baptism and communion service yesterday.
In his parting message to the parish, Pr Butu encouraged his parishioners to “seek God’s wisdom and stay close to God always”.
A new pastor will succeed Pr Butu in the New Year.
