Our Delegate from Zimbabwe is Here!
Abigail Sithole a member of Eastlea Church in Harare, Zimbabwe, our sister church, arrived as part of a delegation yesterday in Boston. You’ll have the opportunity to see her tomorrow in church where we’ll also welcome our New Members!
Shona is one of the two main languages spoken in Zimbabwe. Here’s some common greetings if you would like to try your hand at some Shona. Use them to greet Abigail tomorrow. I’m sure she’d be delighted!
