Rev. Kate Warn, me and Rev. Themba Mkhabela

Sunday, February 24, we were all dressed up and ready to worship in a new sanctuary of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Sierra Leone. There were hundreds of people present including members of the Northern Texas/Northern Louisiana Synod to dedicate this worship space of the new Jubilee Center. This sanctuary is part of a structure being built on Tower Hill a steep incline that has no access road. Despite no easy access hundreds of people paraded up the hill of loose stones and red dirt to praise God for what God has done.

Music was provided by a youth choir that sang hymns in English and songs in Krio. After worship the woman of ELCSL served dinner to some 500 or more people without an indoor kitchen or the modern conviences we in the US are so used to. It was quite a day.
