Kakonda Branch

We traveled to Kakonda again in an attempt to find a place for missionaries to live while working there (now, they must travel for an hour each way from Likasi to work in Kakonda).

While there we met the Branch President and he showed us his home, which was the first ‘church’ in Kakonda. As a member, he moved his family there, converted another family, and soon had twelve people meeting in his humble home.

Their home is grouped in among several other homes

They have no baptismal font, so when they have baptisms they travel down to the nearby stream– where they also do their wash, and just play

lots of children were there swimming and playing in the water as their mothers worked to wash the families clothes

There is one rickety bridge that goes into the town to the mine. All vehicles, including large trucks and semi-s have to travel over this bridge
