Our friends at National Community Church in Washington D.C. are right in the middle of their A1:8 Missions month. Even the kids are learning about missions through a series of lessons focused on what life and ministry look like around the globe. They recently took a closer look at D. R. Congo and the outreach of Congo For Christ Center and Mango Tree School.
Jennifer, who is a National Community Church missions team member to D. R. Congo and Global Outreach Inc Orphan Sponsor, wrote an accompanying blog post for parents of children learning about the Congo ministries. In her post Jennifer wrote:
In the midst of its many challenges, there are bright lights of hope in DR Congo, and it’s seen in people like Pastor Jeremiah Rukukuye. Pastor Jeremiah was a refugee himself who came back to his home country when it was still unsafe, because God gave him great vision for what could be. That vision has played out into what is Congo for Christ Center (CCC) in Uvira, DR Congo – a place where many local community members are equipped with skills and God-given knowledge to pursue their dreams. Through elementary education open to the local community at Mango Tree School and an orphanage that cares for 57 children, Pastor Jeremiah and team are paving the way for hope, restoration and potential to grow in DR Congo.
The children at Congo For Christ Center Orphanage and Mango Tree School are truly blessed to have people like Pastor Jeremiah who care for them. They are also blessed to have advocates and supporters around the globe like Jennifer and all of the Global Outreach Inc donors who make these ministries possible.

The children at National Community Church recently used this video to help them understand what life is like in D. R. Congo for the orphans we serve at Congo For Christ Center.
