Recently we started meeting weekly with the headmen of the village of Ngangula. Our focus is to ask a lot of questions and have them identify the issues facing the communities they lead. Once issues have been identified we try to highlight any cultural or tribal customs that might be contributing to such issues and then look to God's model of government as the mark to build towards. Working cross-culturally has highlighted the fact that all modern cultures have flaws and imperfections which lead to social issues. True peace and prosperity exist only within a society whose individuals collectively value the needs of others first and who are intentionally about living out honor and love towards those they encounter daily. That's the model found in the Kingdom of God and that's the end towards which we exist to achieve.
