Dear sisters and brothers in Christ,
This news is sudden indeed. I want to express the grateful thanks of the diverse communities across the breadth of this UCA for the wise, passionate, faithful and gifted ministry of Semisi Latu. He, Susana and their family have been gracious and loving colleagues and friends from their first day in this country, the Methodist and now Uniting churches.
His contribution to multicultural and cross-cultural ministry through Assembly, Synods, Presbyteries and congregations has borne and will bear much fruit to the glory of God whom he and Susana love so dearly and serve so faithfully.
To the TNC, its members and congregations, we send our prayers and love
Grace and peace
Revd Dr Tony Floyd
