By Bill Kirk

Six years ago, a group from Ellsworth visited a Lutheran bishop in Africa and now it's his turn to reciprocate.

This week's local appearance by Bishop Joseph Bvumbwe of Malawi almost didn't happen, Bobbi Sawyers of English Lutheran Church in Ellsworth said Friday. When proposed initially, Bvumbwe's schedule wouldn't allow it. However, enough time was eventually found and the African visitor is pleased to be coming this Wednesday.

"He's going to be at a concert in Menomonie the next day," Sawyers said, explaining, "It's a benefit for the prevention of malaria."
