Onesimus Kihokolho mhm Kanowit is the oldest mission in the Rejang river. The express-boat from Kapit took just two hours to reach Kanowit. Several catechists greeted us enthusiastically upon arrival. After a short drive we shook hands with Oniz Kihokholo mhm (Uganda) at the parish house. Oniz arrived here just over a year ago and is still perfecting his knowledge of the language. He is here as assistant to Fabian Kong, a Chinese priest.
