 From SCC ~ Masemo Wakibogo was ordained May 8, in a grand, 4-hour service of singing, dancing, praying and preaching at Amani Community Church in Wichita. The specialness of this occasion was announced with the enthusiastic singing and bright orange dresses of the Paradizo Choir to begin the service. There was music by the Amani Women, Amani choir, and the Strong Music Band. The floor shook as the congregation danced in rhythm for the offering song.  Mathayo Masudi Henry, from Tanzania, studying in Denver brought, the sermon. In holy concentration, Pastor Masemo responded to the Ordination Covenant questions presented by Clarence Rempel, SCMC Regional Ministry Coach. African traditions integrated into the service were ordaining with anointing oil and gifts for the pastor. The absence of air conditioning on the hottest day of the year did not diminish the enthusiasm of the participants. After the service, a grand meal of typical African fare was served.
