We want to develop youths who will have a positive impact in the house of God, youths who will bear fruits of encouragement in God's work.

 

Apostle Remmie Muyenga during the festive divine service in Sieo“The text word for today was used by Apostle Paul to strengthen the Colossians. Therefore, my desire is that you become deeply rooted in the will of Jesus Christ. If we become deep- rooted, then these words will have an impact on our spiritual lives,” he said.
