Link Parish Visits

Livingstone - February 2015


As you know, I have recently returned from a visit to Southern Africa, where my final two days were spent in Livingstone, very close to the Victoria Falls. As I was so close I really wanted to visit our twin parish of Livingstone West and of course was able to take greetings from St Thomas’s with me. Father Chikoya very kindly collected me from my hotel and our first stop was at St Augustine’s Church so that I could give the envelope from St Thomas’s in person to Father Yobo. It was a brief visit, but I met the family, had time for a quick chat and photo call before continuing my visit with Father Chikoya.

I spent the rest of the day visiting the local churches, attending an interdenominational service/concert at The David Livingstone College and finally having a meal with Father Chikoya and his family and friends at St Andrew’s Vicarage. I felt extremely privileged and honoured to be there and treated with such kindness amongst such warm and friendly people. - Jane Savery
