Igreja Evangélica Anabaptista em Angola (IEIMA) general assembly
José Arrais (Portugal MB church) represented ICOMB at the Angola MB church assembly. Emerson Cardoso (Brazil MB church) also represented ICOMB in a future way: Convenção Brasileira das Igrejas Evangélicas Irmãos Menonitas (COBIM) is preparing a new missionary couple for agricultural projects and theological training. Emerson trained 200 pastors. We prayed that the Assembly would settle some conflicts and secure the future executive team. Pray for Jean Claude Ambeke, elected president.
