Remain united, Bishop Mulenga advises Lwitikila Girls Secondary school members

The bishop also looked at the examples of the Holy Trinity and the Holy Family, “Both the holy trinity and the holy family make a perfect unity that comes with strengh and of course scorn”.
“You people you have so many examples of institutions of unity, Emmulate them, imitate them, try to be that. Remain united because when you do that you will be able to withstand any external pressure”.
Bishop Mulenga urged them to remain united and promised to continue praying for unity in the community, “I will be praying, maybe more less like our Lord prayed but until you continue to be one. I will pray that in my humble way and from that unity will come tremendous achievements.
