Pastor Phil Tonnesen, Pastor Gilberto Quesada, Luis Zamora, María Obregon, and Bishop Tim Smith
Friends from Costa Rica
In October, our synod was privileged to be host to a delegation of three from our companion synod, Iglesia Lutheran Costarricense (ILCO). The delegation consisted of Pastor Gilberto Quesada, President of ILCO, and lay members of ILCO, María Obregon and Luis Zamora. Pastor Quesada was making a return visit to our synod, but Obregon and Zamora were first-time visitors to N.C. and to the U.S.
