The landscape is even more striking from Kapalu. This is near some villages known as Tulutul.

Church planting in Timu
We've been busy this spring with visitors. A few weeks ago some new friends from AIM (Africa Inland Mission) came for a visit. We took them up to Timu and showed them both sides of the mountain, both Lokinene and a place called Kapalu. When getting to Kapalu, we were delighted to hear about a new church being started there. An Ik man named Zachary has just finished seminary and has returned to Kapalu to lead a congregation. He is with the Church of Uganda (Anglican). At first, Zachary was leading prayers on benches under a large tree. Now his congregation has erected a small building to meet under. This will protect them from rain. They may also put mud on the walls as a protection from wind. We thank God for another church among the Ik. This is just one more opportunity for the gospel to be preached. You can pray that the people of Kapalu will come to know the Lord. You can also pray that Christians will be sent to this place to encourage the church and disciple believers. The new meeting place is above, the old meeting place is below.
