More than a thousand United Methodists of the Angola West Conference mobilized recently in Luanda, the capital, for a massive cleanup campaign throughout the city.
As the effort began, West Angola Area Bishop Gaspar João Domingos and his wife, the Rev. Lucrécia Domingos, joined the group at Bethel Chapel.
“Methodists are called to do good to everyone and at all times,” he said. “We cannot live with the garbage that surrounds us, so as not to feel like garbage, too.”
