Angola: Rev. Urges Faithfuls to Join Country's Development Tasks

Luanda — The chairman of the Christian Evangelical Church of Angola (ICEA), rev. Gabriel Chiquete, said Friday in Viana, Luanda, that the church members must closely follow the developments of the country as a form of participation in its growth.

The rev. was addressing the opening of the second Provincial Conference of Ladies.

According to him, where there are women the church grows and should for that reason follow the developments.

He added that where there is a Christian woman, in a school, market, any other place, she needs to make a difference, be useful in the presence of Good so that everything goes well.

The second ICEA Provincial Conference of Ladies that is taking place from Thursday until Sunday with the theme "Women firm and constant in the work of Jesus" is tackling such topics as the new family code, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, cooperation, immigrants and mixed marriage, attitude and identity of the Christian woman.

The meeting is intended to assess the work done during the two previous years and outline the future of the organisation of the Christian woman.

The ICEA was established in 1965.
