Cool fellowship in wintry Botswana

GABORONE, Botswana — Nearly 2,000 Christians from 12 nations shivered as they shared warm fellowship at the recent International Lectureship of the Churches of Christ.

Church members bundled themselves in sweaters as they praised God in the southern African capital, where it’s currently winter. 
The Phuthego Ya Ga Keresete (“Churches of Christ” in Botswana’s language, Tswana) hosted the event. The nation of 2.1 million souls has about 15 Churches of Christ, said church member Tebogo Maruping.
“Despite the cold weather, people really enjoyed the lessons, and I think many souls were uplifted,” said Stanley Shereni, a minister in Zimbabwe. Two attendees were baptized.
