Reconciliation in Kandale
Kandale was one of the 8 original AIMM/ CIM mission stations that helped nurture and grow Mennonite Church of Congo. During an anti-government rebellion in 1964, Kandale missionaries were threatened and the station was burned. Native son Macaire Kilambo spearheaded an effort supported by AIMM to bring church leaders, community leaders and missionary representatives together in order to reconcile and to, by faith, provide the community with a new start. The event took place October 12-15, 2017.
