In our own matters:
What happened to the windows for the church in Kapdafe?
You might recall that some years ago to young men, who were working at Branden Gates Studios, brought up the idear to support a Catholic church in West Africa by presenting them a stained glass window. The church is located in the small village of Kapdafe in Togo and its congregation was looking foreward to their windows.
The entire staff of Branden Gates was excited and got to work. We presented various designs and let the church elders pick their favorites. We even got he support of two friends who pledged a small amount of money. Then came Covid: the two young men left the company and went on in their lives. Mathias Oehlert decided to continue to work on the project and said, he would make the windows at his own expense. One got finished. It depicts the apostle Peter and you can see the finished window on our web site. While at the beginning there was some common spirit, now nobody seemes to care. Unfortunately we do not have any direct contact to the church in Kapdafe. It is difficult to keep motivated to work for a good cause when you are alone.
Maybe one of the readers of this article might want to bring some fresh air into the project. As we have stated, we do have enough material in stock, all the designs are ready-made. What we need is someone who comes for a couple of days to give a helping hand and we could have the second window finished within a month.
