Congo - June 2010
Skip and I have decided to proceed with plans to go to the Democratic Republic of Congo in June. As our earlier post explained this will be an invaluable way to gain training and experience for future orphan ministry. The need in Kinshasa is great in the aftermath of war. Our Congo Bridge Team will travel to the capital city and will come alongside of the Congolese to help them in their ongoing process of rebuilding with pastoral training, economic development, medical assistance and orphan care. We have just completed our family news and support letter with all of the details. Now we will begin making plans for our time away. Scheduling summer childcare, necessary vaccinations, visas and flights are next!
