An example of spontaneous church planting:
Brother Twanu Thinyemba took the work further, after it was started first here in Gobabis by migrant workers,then taken to Mbukushuland, and assisted by our team from Gobabis.
Meanwhile the congregation had spread to include several smaller groups in about 9 villages!
In 2010 friends from South Africa helped us build a roof structure at the main village, Kahanga.
Meanwhile, Twanu has relocated to Kahanga to better minister to the church.
What are our urgent physical needs?
Twanu needs help to finish his house, so he can bring his wife and children to Kahanga.
We dreamt a roof, now we dream a bigger roof (since it's filled to capacity) and walls!
Why can't the Mbukushu's themselves do all this? Because as a body of Christ, we either have to give direct help to very poor family in Christ, or realistically empower them. This way, we don't hinder the work of the Gospel but may be blessed to take part in it.
