“Siku hiyo chipukizi la Bwana litakuwa zuri, lenye Utukufu, na matunda na ya nchi yatakuwa mema sana, na kupendeza, kwa ajili ya Waisraeli wale waliookoka.” Isaya 4:2 ( Isaiah chapter 4, verse 2 )
Pastor Alobo fled the Democratic Republic of Congo in 2003 with his wife, one son and two relatives to escape the violence of civil war, arriving at the Dzaleka Refugee Camp in Dowa, Malawi in Central Africa. While staying at the refugee camp, Alobo planted a new church and launched Evangelical Free Church of Eden Ministries (EFCEM). Pastor Alobo spend almost 10 years at Dzaleka, growing both his family and his ministry.
In March of 2013 Alobo and his family had the opportunity to come to the United States, moving initially to Sacramento, California. Answering the Lord’s call Faustin brought his wife, two sons and three daughters to Iowa in September of 2013. After only 11 months in Des Moines, Congolese refugee Faustin Alobo has launched a Swahili language church.
