This week we were invited by our friend Emmanuel to visit his church in the village of Nkonko. He rode his bike into town early to meet us and show us the way. After push-starting the Land Cruiser, we loaded his bike into the back and drove the 10km outside of town to Nkonko. They have a small mud-brick and thatch-roof building. From the outside, it looks like it will be dark and cramped inside.
However, thanks to some holes in the thatch, the sun came in and it was bright and pleasant inside. One of the walls was not complete, which let the breeze come through and made it feel open airy. The light was much better than we often find in churches, which made it a much better environment for getting some pictures. Here are a few of the pictures that summarize the day:
Bitshilolo – spunky little girl! Their drum set. Creative and effective!
We were treated to a delicious lunch after the service, along with the 2 visiting choirs. Of course there was a request to help with the new building that they are collecting funds for. But we were encouraged and impressed with what they have done with the little they have. Truly, it felt like the Holy Spirit is at work in this little village church!
