He challenged them to be determined be their character to bring others to worship God in the new structure.

As a tradition during the laying of the foundation stone, the histories of the congregations concerned were read during the different ceremonies, and various symbolic articles ranging from the Church, seedlings and food extracts  of the particular community as well as coins used by the people and many historical pieces are buried in one corner for posterity.

Mankwi congregation was born in 1914 while Ntah-Mambu congregation was created in1935 and recognized as a full fleshed congregation in 1959. Both occasions were marked by various speeches, fundraising to complete the buildings, infant and adult baptism .
