As the ceremony to launch Matthew’s Gospel translated into Isenye got underway, the small church quickly began to fill. When it ended five hours later, the team estimated that over 250 people had come to celebrate together.

The familiar sights and sounds of colourful local choirs leading the celebration in song and dance was a big part of the day’s event.
