DISCIPLES TAKE UNFORGETTABLE MISSION TRIP TO SWAZILAND

Disciples from Indiana and Kentucky have powerful memories of a mission trip that took them to Swaziland, whose population has the world’s highest infection rate of HIV and AIDS in the world. The 11 Disciples, who were mostly from First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Shelbyville, Ind., spent two weeks in the southeast African nation caring for children and building a relationship with the Global Ministries partner church there, the Kukhany’okusha Zion Church (KZC).

Janice Wilson, who led the mission trip and is married to First Christian’s pastor, Nathan D. Wilson, has developed a love for the people of the country and a lasting friendship with the leader of the KZC partner church in Swaziland, Bishop Samuel Mkhonta. Janice Wilson first went to Swaziland in 2004 and has been back three times since, including this summer’s trip.
