We are thrilled with the continued updates about the success of the Community Feeding Program at Congo for Christ Center. Each week the number of children who arrive for the church service and lunch increases. An African proverb says “hungry bellies have no ears.” On April 23rd there were 520 children who attended the service and heard the gospel and were fed. Of that number, forty-six children prayed to accept Jesus as their personal Savior. In the previous weeks an additional sixty-seven children have given their hearts and lives to Christ.
123 children gave their hearts to Christ in April during the community feeding outreaches.
Pastor Jeremiah reports that members of the community are happy that so many children are being taught the Word of God. They are already seeing wonderful changes in these young lives.
The community is happy that so many children are being taught the Word of God.
We asked them to share some of the testimonies from the children who are participating:
A boy named Makalengi shared that when he was bathing in the Kalimabenge River a large stone fell and almost crashed into his head. He said it was because of the prayers at the service he believes God protected his life.
Another boy shared that he was swimming in Lake Tanganyika and a crocodile was chasing him and he was afraid he would be attacked. He quickly prayed that God would save him so he could attend the service at CCC, and the crocodile swam away.
Another child thanked God for the food he received because he had not eaten at all the previous day.
Each month we are increasing the funds to feed and minister to these precious children. This is only possible through your continued generous giving. In the words of Pastor Jeremiah, “May God bless you our donors and may you continue with that great heart.”
What man among you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask Him! Matthew 7:9,11
