Church members in the Local Congregation of Lilongwe City, in the country of Malawi, spent time together by playing friendly games of Bao, a traditional African board game. Organized by the Christian Family Organizations (CFO), the activity was held on May 8, 2022.
Lilongwe City is the capital of Malawi, wherein Bao is a popular pastime of locals. Bao is a board game played by two, the goal of which is to empty the front row of the opponent or to make it impossible for him to make another move. It has a resemblance to the Filipino game called sungka.
The local congregation of the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) in Lilongwe City is under the jurisdiction of the Ecclesiastical District of Southeastern Africa. It is the Church’s newest district in the continent having been established only in 2019. The two other districts there are Northern Africa and Southern Africa.
CFO activities, which include sports activities, serve as avenues for brethren to further strengthen the love of brotherhood. These activities also encourage Church members to be more active in the works of the Church. — With reports from INC News Section
