Mesage from Same Cathedral Parish



Dear Pastor Roger, 

Dear leaders of Gloria Dei Church, 

Dear members of Partnership committee, 

Dear sisters and brothers in Christ, Praise the Lord. 

My name is Pastor Ndekia. I’m a Pastor in charge of Same Cathedral Parish. On behalf of my colleague Pastor Safiel Mpombe and all members of Cathedral Parish I would like to take few minutes to say a word of greetings to you. 

As you know we have reached one year of our partnership. It was a year of joy and blessing because of our friendship. You prayed for us, you were always encouraging and supporting us when we were passing in strong challenges caused by covid 19. We regard this partnership as a gift from God. With the love and support we got from you but unfortunately several times we failed even to respond on time due to number of reasons. I take this time to say sorry for that and for all short comings you faced from our side. I hope we will improve as we move on. 

It is my prayer that God guide us and strengthen our friend ship as He has given us this command “Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sisters “ (1John 4.20-21) 

Holy God thank you for un ending love and mercy. We have seen your love through our friends from Gloria Dei church. We pray that you bless and keep them safe. Thank you for commitment and talents you invested to Pastor Roger and his team. God may your presence goes with them. We also pray for the coming years of our partnership. Keep it strong and flourish it with your love. 

“Surely your goodness and love will follow us all the days of our life and we will dwell in the house of the Lord forever”
