Dr. Francis Monseth, the Dean of the Seminary for the Association of Free Lutheran Congregations (MN, USA) passed away in March 29, 2013. Dr Monseth was teaching Systematic theology at the very beginning of the Academy in mid-90ies, spending his Sabbatical year – and helping us in many ways with his advice, organizing exchange of lecturers, widening the net behind the Academy in the States. Our deepest condolences go to his family and colleagues. He died suddenly on Good Friday. He was a faithful and much beloved servant of God. We rejoice at the resurrection victory he experienced as He saw Jesus face to face.
