Serenje Celebration

Hope you all enjoyed the Serenje celebration on Sunday. We had a great time reflecting on what God has done in Serenje over the last 5 years as well as looking to the future. Jamie Fyleman from Tearfund shared details of the Umoja project which will be implemented in Serenje over the next few years. Umoja is Swahili for 'togetherness' and is a dynamic way of helping local churches to work together with their community in addressing needs using their own resources.

Here is a link to the video which summarises the measurable impact of the Serenje project.

We also spoke about how, as we have seen powerful transformation in the lives of those in Serenje, we have also seen transformation in our own lives. I love that children in schools in Bracknell can locate Serenje on a map and recall important facts about the region. And we have had our hearts changed as we have built relationships with those in Serenje and got to know them as friends.

The Zambia flag cakes were pretty good too!
