Pastoral ministry is still going on amidst the lockdown in this pandemic time but as with us in the UK, it has to take a different form. As you will be aware most of the refugees do not have the technology or airtime to enjoy church via the internet as we did, so we were glad to have this short report from the Diocese of Liwolo.

Sundays’ services and preaching of the word of God is going on in the families and in those places with loud hailers which is helping Christians in their Christian life.

In July the stations received a handwashing container to help prevent the spread of COVID. Radio Liberty in Imvepi camp received four chairs. Training has also taken place so the presenters have been able to improve their knowledge and skills with the equipment.

During August Bishop Joseph was also able to meet with the archdeacons in Mijale church and talk about their roles in the ministry, and the local leaders of Liwolo Payam to continue listening, supporting and working together in fellowship.

CRESS is very thankful to those of you who supported the Loud Hailer projects last year and this insight shows how important they still are in the communities.
