Our vision as OM Lake Tanganyika is to see the people living around the Lake worshipping the Lord in Spirit and in Truth. We want to see them experience freedom from their fears and bondage to spirit worship, and to become people and communities transformed by the love of Jesus.
On the whole, the villages of Lake Tanganyika are characterised by underdevelopment. The predominant source of livelihood is fishing as agricultural farming is an almost impossible venture in the rocky soil. Clinics and schools are few and the literacy rate is very low. Ritual sacrifices are thought to help the fishermen bring in a good catch. A visit to the local witch doctor is believed to ensure blessing when sickness occurs. People follow the traditions of spiritism and witchcraft and are largely bound by fear.
Kapembwa is a village along the shores of Lake Tanganyika that was known for its spiritual darkness. That changed when people began praying.
