The leaders exchanged information about how their respective national churches are structured and how revenue comes in for ministry, among other matters. Mubenga and Traoré spoke glowingly of the hospitality they received and the interest staff took in their respective ministries. Their visit coincided with an invitation from Africa Inter-Mennonite Mission’s (AIMM) to visit and celebrate the founding of North American-based AIMM and its predecessor, Africa Inland Mission, 100 years ago. Mubenga also serves as chair of AIMM’s International Central Council, and Traoré its vice chair.
