North Katanga Tells Its Story
Sunday, November 8, 2015 (All day) to Thursday, November 19, 2015 (All day)

One of the greatest gifts of being United Methodist is our Global Identity.  Since 2002, West Ohio has been blessed by being in a covenant partnership with the North Katanga Conference in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.  The North Katanga Conference is the largest annual conference in the denomination.  And we have the gift of hosting key leaders in our conference during November.  Below is a schedule of where you can meet, learn and interact with key leaders responsible for the vitality of ministry throughout the North Katanga Conference.  If you have any questions, please be in touch with dstickley [at] (subject: North%20Katanga%20) (Dee Stickley-Miner)  614-844-6200 x239 or mblackstone [at] (subject: North%20Katanga%20Consultation) (Mary Blackstone) 614-844-6200 x217. 

We are saddened to inform everyone of the death of Jeanne Ntambo’s father on November 4, 2015.  Because of his sudden death, Jeanne will be staying home in the Congo, instead of coming to Ohio.   Gaston’s arrival to Ohio will be delayed, resulting in the cancelation of his preaching at North Broadway United Methodist Church on Sunday, November 8th.  We invite you to keep Jeanne, Gaston and their family in prayer as they grieve the passing of her father.

West Ohio welcomes Gaston Ntambo, Wings of the Morning Missionary and Sebastien Kasango, Director of Kamina Children's Home. You are invited to attend any of these opportunities.
