  • Worshipping in Swahili in Boise: African Fellowship

    An enthusiastic and ardent congregation, consisting of mostly refugees, meets Sunday afternoons for worship in Swahili. While some congregation members go to Sunday morning English-speaking services, many do not understand enough English, so evangelist Jean Bangerere founded African Fellowship. The Fellowship is celebrating its second anniversary in November and includes a kids' program and choir that meets several times a week after school. "It's growing, by God's glory," says Bangerere.
