This photo, unearthed by Pastor George and Claudia Brookover and posted on Facebook by Pastor David Roschke, is the last Texas-Louisiana Synod (LCA) Convention, 35 years ago this month (June 1987).

Pastor David writes: “That’s Claudia Brookover in white. I’m to her left. Martin Yonts, who was later elected as our first synod bishop, is to my left, and I think that might be Gerald Leaf, first Executive Director of the Lutheran Foundation of the SW, to the left of Martin Yonts. Do any oldtimers recognize any of the others in the photo? Thanks to George and Claudia Brookover for unearthing the photo.”
