Sondre

Sondre is located 1.5 hours north of the capital. The terrain is very dry and flat.

However, when you go there and meet the people, you experience life and energy! God led us to the village of Sondre through Pastor Zimba who planted the first church in the community in 2009. He saw the first believer ever to come to know Christ in that village. Now there are five other church plants and hundreds of believers on fire! It was obvious God was up to something, and we just knew we had to be a part of that. The pastor has led the way in community conversations, which ultimately has created an amazing partnership between the community, the church and WITLI! Read below for more details.
