Kisesa FMC-Still going Strong!

On Wednesday 12th this month I managed to visit the Kisesa FMC to see how they were progressing. I found the wife of our lay Pastor, Benedicto havinga Bible study session with a few members of the church. They narrated to me how the rains had caused havoc in their area and destroyed crops. Many farmers are having to work on their farms again hoping that the rains will not repeat the destruction.

The Kisesa FMC meets in a house that is thatched with reeds on the inside and grass on top.About 22 adults meet for worship on a normal Sunday morning.
