Kutela Katembo, Agricultural Missionary

We are excited to have Kutela Katembo visit BUMC on Sunday, June 7.  Kutela is a new Methodist missionary who will be working in East Angola.  He is from the Democratic Republic of Congo and is being sent to Quessua, Angola to work in sustainable agriculture. Kutela has a degree in Agriculture from Africa University in Zimbabwe and while he has not yet been to Angola, he has worked on UMCOR food security issues and as an agricultural trainer and consultant.  After touring Bozeman he will visit other churches in Montana before going to Helena.  He will be commissioned at the Yellowstone Annual Conference in Helena on June 20. Our Conference has a history of strong support of Methodist projects and pastors in Angola and we are looking forward to meeting Kutela.
There are 12 additional missionaries being commissioned this spring, and you can read more about all of them here.  This link will take you to more information on YAC involvement in Angola.
