Congo team visit Bunia


Bishop Keith and six travellers from the Diocese of Chester recently visited Bunia, as part of their journey to Diocese of Aru and Boga in the Democratic republic of Congo.

The visit to Bunia has gone very well, with the team feeling hugely blessed and humbled by the faith, sense of God and the Bible knowledge of the young people involved in the youth conference. We are asked to pray as Bishop William prayed for the youth conference and the empowerment of young people in the church in Boga Diocese.

On Saturday, the team were taken on a tour of the Anglican University, meeting with students in the morning, and in the afternoon, pastors from the diocese for discussions about the ABC link, coming away with many ideas for future link projects. Sunday morning saw Bishop Keith confirming no less than 64 candidates during a fantastic service, followed in the afternoon by a Choir Festival hosted by Smith Anglican Church in Bunia.
