Bega Kwa Bega is the phrase we use to describe our companion synod relationship with the Iringa Diocese of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Tanzania (ELCT). In English, the phrase means “shoulder to shoulder”, describing the way in which we accompany one another in a spirit of mutuality, inclusivity, and vulnerability.
