A New Church for Subukia
A place to gather and worship…that is what the people in the new community of Subukia were hoping for once their homes were built. Thanks to multiple donors from Eagle Nazarene Church, a church now stands as a place where they can gather. One group from Eagle Nazarene provided funds for the foundation; another provided for the bricks; an individual provided for a roof; and still another supporter gave to help install windows and doors. The people from the Subukia community also contributed by providing the labor and by donating chairs to furnish seating for the church. Recently, an opening celebration was held where Expansion International gifted the church with Bibles and Hymnals to help them begin their ministry to the community. To see that not only the physical needs of the people are being met but also the spiritual needs is an exciting part of watching this community grow.
