Lubwa - Revd Dr D.M. Brown

Before I lose the link, I thought I'd post this pointer to some great materials on Lubwa mission, where David Kaunda preached and worked.

There are some very nice photos and cuttings here, featuring mainly the Revd Dr D.M. Brown, Scottish missionary, as well as a lot of information about Lubwa and other missions at Itete and Livingstonia.

Well worth taking time over...
