means “the one who brings light”.

I started off with an old corrugated-iron hut of 100 m²  where a little nursey school was housed. The hut belonged to a little, poor parish. During the day approx. 70 babies and little children were looked after. On sundays church was held
for about 100 people. When Elise Elsing first met the people from this parish, there was no current, no water, no sanitary rooms.

Because of the generous donations the first cut of a spade could be celebrated on 30.11.2009. When the first layer of concrete was applied, Gideon Monwabisi, the priest, arrived and a well-packaged bible was incorporated into the foundation. This procedure was accompanied by intense prayers.
On 24.11.2012 the new building was offically opened.
