FLMK – Kamwingi Church Construction

 

IMG_2566

Land was purchased July 2014 and Kamwingi Church was birthed. The congregation has grown slowly, but steadily to over 30. They worshipped under a tree initially for 3 months. The congregation then purchased a tarp and built a temporary building where they have been worshipping, teaching, training and the Word has been preached each Sunday. This past December, they set a goal to make the 5,000 bricks necessary to help build a permanent building. In October they accomplished their goal!

     Our Kamwingi congregation has vision and are willing to labor for Christ. They have now outgrown their wood pole structure and need more room. What they need is what they cannot give. The balance of what is needed to build a 25’ x 30’ brick church is below.
