Visit from Kalengule and Nsama Kaoma 

by: Gary Moore

Kalengule and Nsama Kaoma (Mission Developer for the WCG in Africa) were able to visit Canada after the annual Mission Developers meetings in Glendora. They visited a combined French/English service in Montreal on March 14, and the Ottawa congregation on the 15th. After spending some time with Bill and Linda Rabey they travelled to Toronto where they enjoyed the warm hospitality of Alvaro and Laura Palacio. The Palacio’s were kind enough to take them to Niagara Falls for a day, so they could compare Niagara to Victoria Falls in their home country of Zambia. I think the feeling was that they are both extremely impressive in different ways!

After visiting the Toronto East congregation on the 21st, the Palacios drove them to London for services on Sunday the 22nd. Phil Baldwin arranged for a Carribean steel drum band to lead the worship service, and a great pot-luck followed.

Wendy and I chatted on the phone before they flew back home, and they said they had an absolutely wonderful time. The warmth and support of the Canadian congregations made a big impact on them, and Kalengule especially appreciated the opportunity to thank the membership for their support for mission in Africa. The pastors involved have told me that the sermon Kalengule gave was very powerful and insightful, and that their visit has been a big boost to the membership in those areas.

Next year, I am hoping to arrange for them to visit congregations in the western part of the country, and host the Kaoma’s at our home for a few days. They are already anticipating the opportunity to come back to Canada, and continue to build bonds of brotherhood, friendship, and shared mission with their Canadian spiritual family.
