A letter of congratulations to Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka
My dear Phumzile
I was grateful for the opportunity to speak with you on the phone earlier this week, and offer my personal congratulations on your new position.
But let me now, with great joy, formally join my own congratulations, with those of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa, on your appointment as Executive Director for ‘UN Women’, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and Empowerment of Women.
May our God who has given you so many gifts, and such rich experiences in life, now guide, direct and further equip you in this new calling. May he, who creates men and women equally in his image, enable you to contribute to the freeing of women and girls around the world from all that holds them back, so they may know freedom to pursue their own potential. May he bless you richly in this new chapter of your life, and make you a blessing to others.
Yours in the service of Christ
