Nongoma and Mahlabatini July 1956
There were two projects for 1956. Two churches,one in Nongoma village and one in Mahlabatini. It was in Mahlabatini that I met Chief Gatsha Butelezi. He stopped and asked what we were doing. I stayed behind for ten days after the others had gone home to finish putting the asbestos roof on the Nongoma church.
The church in Nongoma was opened by the Rev Sudbury who was President of the Methodist Conference at the time I think.
