We visited the Methodist Church of Southern Africa to attend a service that Parishner Bram had organized.

The church itself is relatively dilapidated, which is similiar to the condition that you find most structures in the settlement. There are large holes in the walls and ceiling and a lack of chairs for anyone to sit.

Due to the strength of the Christian faith in the Wallacedene settlement,  worshippers are not deterred from attending. Every Sunday, the four hour long service is packed with individuals from the local community.

The atmosphere of the church is something to be experienced and difficult to describe through words. The only way to truly experience it is to hear it for yourself:

I hope you’ll be as moved as we were.
