Albany- Members of an Albany Church are sharing a part of their culture with South Africans.

The 11th annual South Africa America Cultural Exchange and Training is happening at the River Road Church of Christ. The program allows delegates from 12 South African counties to experience life in the United States.

They take those lessons back to Africa where they're put into their day to day lives.

"Here in Albany they get the chance to go and see what the city of Albany is doing in those particular areas of personal development, health care delivery systems, as well as educational systems," said Dr. Lynn Nelson, River Road Church of Christ.

As part of the program, The Northeast Chorus from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma sang for the delegates, who also shared songs with the congregation.
