Congo Missions Team Update


For the 5th year in a row a missions team from National Community Church in Washington D.C. has visited the Congo For Christ Orphanage in Uvira, DRC. This year’s mission team leaders, Nik and Mandy Hanlon, shared about their recent visit to Congo for Christ:

In mid July, a team from National Community Church in Washington, DC traveled to Uvira to visit the Congo for Christ orphanage. The team arrived to find the majority of the children in great health and high spirits. Unfortunately, a few of the children were sick with Typhoid and Malaria during the team’s visit. However, they were taken to the hospital and treated quickly. We continue to pray for the healthcare costs for the kids, the CCC staff, and their families.

"It was such a blessing to see how CCC is consistently finding ways to improve the children’s environment."

It was such a blessing to see how CCC is consistently finding ways to improve the children’s environment. Because of improvements in bedding and increased living space, the rooms in the main building have been organized to allow the kids to live in family type units with staggered age groups, designated responsibilities, and loving “Mommas.” The sense of family structure is apparent in the maturity and demeanor of the children and in the tidiness of the whole facility. From the gardens to the living space, you can see that the children take pride and responsibility in everything they do.

It was also great to see progress made on the perimeter wall surrounding the CCC land. However, it is only about halfway completed. Please pray for the funds to be raised to finish it as the security provided by the wall ensures the safety and security of the CCC children, staff and resources.

"When you pray for the Congo for Christ Orphanage, thank God for all the amazing improvements and for all the dedicated people who were a part of making it happen."
