Charles Mungu and Abu Conteh, both WEI graduates, continue to work together to evangelize the village of Makondoh where a new congregation was begun in April, 2021. Land was donated, and the congregation has completed a building with a paved floor and vinyl chairs. Seventeen people have been baptized into Christ. New brothers and sisters in the Makondoh congregation are from Catholic and Muslim backgrounds, and some practiced Juju, a magical West African folk religion.
Abu Conteh uses WEI materials to preach and also to teach 120 students in the village school. His wife Susan has a small business supplying medicine. They are both active in evangelizing and helping care for widows.
Charles travels 70 miles by motorbike to the village to help in evangelizing each week, then returns to preach at the Mile 91 Church of Christ in Freetown which continues to grow, with five recent baptisms. The congregation also hosted the area preacher’s retreat.
