Primate of Uganda, Archbishop Stanley Ntagali, Welcomes new Kenyan Primate
The Rt. Rev. Jackson Ole Sapit
Anglican Church of Kenya
Dear Archbishop-elect Jackson,
Greetings from the Church of Uganda in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ!
On behalf of the House of Bishops of the Church of Uganda, the clergy, and laity of the Province, we extend our hearty congratulations to you on your election as the next Archbishop of the Anglican Church of Kenya.
We have been praying for the election and believe that God’s will has been done. Your colleagues have recognized God’s apostolic calling and anointing on you, and we believe His grace will be sufficient for the big ministry ahead of you. We shall warmly welcome you to the GAFCON Primates Council and look forward to walking together as neighbours in East Africa in the cause of Christ, His Gospel, and the expansion of His Kingdom into every corner of our region and into every heart.
We thank Archbishop Eliud for his steadfast leadership of the Anglican Church of Kenya and the global GAFCON community. He has been single-minded in proclaiming and contending for the “faith once for all delivered to the saints” (Jude 3). We believe the future is very bright for the Anglican Church of Kenya and we thank God for your election to serve as Archbishop and shall pray for you as you prepare to receive the baton being passed to you.
Your brother, in Christ,
The Most Rev. Stanley Ntagali
ARCHBISHOP OF CHURCH OF UGANDA.
