EXPEDITION TO ANGOLA...
The beginning of the year saw us leaving on the 28th December to explore Angola. We attempted to cover as much territory as possible in the time available, seeking God’s face for church planting opportunities.
We explored the Cuanda Cubango province in the south.Throughout much of the 1980s and 1990s, Cuanda Cubango served as the location for the primary base camp of Angola's UNITA rebel movement. It was hardest hit during the war years.What can we say...
•Angola is a difficult country to enter and travel in (see above pic).
•Most of the villages have a church. The province is highly evangelized. Although in these remote areas the adage, “In Africa the church is a mile wide and a foot deep” applies.
•There are countless opportunities for service…sport, reconstruction, education, health care, agriculture, as well as opportunities for church strengthening.
February saw the start of this year's church planting school with 45 students from around the world. Their outreaches headed into Africa, going to Zambia,
Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Namibia as well as our local areas of Ocean View and Masiphumelele. There are some amazing stories to be told.
