Gecamine Ward

Went to a new ward last week and this week: Gecamine. It sits just off a main road outside Lubumbashi.

The church is situated next to another Christian church which uses a loudspeaker system. Even though church started at 8am, the church next door began shortly after (at least the minister began to preach over the system) and essentially drowned-out the meetings we attended. If the doors and windows were closed, you could catch some of what was said, but then you all broiled in the heat. If you opened the windows for air, the loud preaching next door was all you could hear…

In spite of the difficult circumstances the members of the church here have strong testimonies and are faithful in coming each week.
