Congo Leadership Support Network Coaching Team, March 2016

Charles Buller traveled to Congo for Leadership Support Network Seminars in March. After he returned safely to the U.S. at the end of March he shared these comments and photos from the seminars.

“We held the first two seminars in Mukedi & Kikwit on ‘Foundations of Transformational Leadership.’ These two photos are of the participants at both seminars. Each image is compiled from three separate images ‘stitched’ together.”

“We were hugely pleased that many of the leaders chose to bring their wives, and even some women came on their own. In both seminars, team members Antoinette Kiswangi Kuma and Mundedi Bercie spoke on the role of women in society (veiled title for ‘women in leadership’) that nearly brought the house down (was very well received)!”

The first photo at the top of the page of the leadership coaching team was taken back in Kinshasa during their final review of the two weeks of seminars. Charles said, “What a wonderful, talented, and dedicated team!”

Prayer Requests
“Albert Mulamba began his arduous journey by motorbike back to Tshikapa following the seminars. Thank you for keeping him in your prayers. Only 4 months ago he was making his way back from a church visit when a drunk was ‘planted’ on the road to jump into the path of his motorbike to cause an accident that the village would then try to pin on Albert. While Albert was seriously wounded in the collision, the drunk was not injured at all. The trap failed. These things are the unexpected surprises that can beset a traveler in Congo DRC. Again, thanks for keeping Albert in your prayers.”

Truly this is a reminder to pray for the safety of so many Christians and all of the leaders in these photos in particular since they are targeted. Pray also that these villagers would be led to know the saving grace of Jesus Christ. May they come to see a better way to live and provide for families.
