[Angola] A women’s ministry day in Lubango, Angola, drew 250 women to the Arleth Céu Gando Health Center for a cleanup day. The community activity was organized by Sister Arleth Céu Gando as part of Angola’s “Impact Evangelism 2019.”

The purpose of the event was to raise awareness of the existence of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, but also to sensitize the community of the need to keep their environment clean thereby combating vandalism and pollution.

Lubango is headquarters for the South Association Mission in the South-Western Angola Union Mission.
