The newly constructed church in Busumbala, Gambia is the believers first church in Gambia, and is an important step in helping them to organize and develop a sense of identity. The project began somewhat unexpectedly in late April due to the Covid pandemic. During the initial period, many Gambians were not able to work at their normal jobs but could work on this project. Thus, there was a great deal of volunteer labor, allowing costs to be kept down. The project is now completed. Dedication services were held January 8–10, 2021.
