2021 – Busy Successful Year

Hope for Congo wants to say, THANK YOU, for your faithfulness and support. You have given to this ministry. You have prayed for us. Your faithfulness to God allowed us to be your hands and feet in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Jehovah Jireh, God provides, expresses well this past year of 2021. This feels like an understatement when we reflect back. God has supplied above and beyond what we could ask for or imagine.

 

Completed six primary school classrooms
and an administrative office.

 

 

Successfully drilled a well at Ndjoko Punda.

The team located a 135 foot deep reservoir of water . . .beyond expectations.

 

 

 

Began construction to replace the hospital at Ndjoko Punda.

The old hospital was destroyed by a storm in 2019.

 

 

500 Bibles distributed.

300 of those Bibles were distributed

to pastors with no Bible.

 

Sometimes it seems things move so slowly, especially has we remember months of waiting for various parts of these projects to come together. However, we must remember, God is at work even when we do not see it. If we do not give up, in time we will reap a harvest.

Thank you for the privilege of being your hands and feet serving the people of the DRC. Together, we are sharing in this harvest.

Blessings FLOW!

Praise God from whom all blessings flow!

The drilling project at Ndjoko Punda was successful above and beyond our expectations. We received news this morning that the team found water at 55 feet. The large underground reservoir extends down 188 + feet. With 188 feet of casing installed this will provide as much water as the solar pump is designed to pump.

The next steps are to clean the well casing and install the solar pump. They anticipate the project to be completed by the first of next week. In the meantime, there is a great celebration going on at Ndjoko Punda.

A big shout out to all of you who have supported Hope for Congo in prayer and giving towards this project. We will follow up later with pics of the finished well. Jehovah Jireh!

Long Awaited Moment

A long awaited moment arrived this past Thursday for the community of Ndjoko Punda in the DR Congo.

Hope for Congo has persevered for two plus years to purchase, deliver and gather together a team to drill one of hopefully many wells to come.

We praise God for His faithfulness.

Psalm 91:2 says, “This I declare about the Lord; He alone is my refuge, my place of safety, He is my God, and I trust Him.”

Many of you have donated to this project. We want you to share in the same joy and anticipation that the Church and community of Ndjoko Punda are experiencing this week.

The first day of drilling resulted in 32 feet. Friday and Saturday went slower as they drilled through a substrate of rock.

The anticipated depth to water is 180 feet.

Pray that God would provide both the physical water that is desperately needed and the Water of Life, which offers an eternal hope.

Thanks for your prayers and support. Enjoy this short video:

A Rare Luxury

Dear Hope for Congo Readers and Ministry Partners,

In the last few months, I have read several inspiring books. Those books have challenged and encouraged my faith.

For believers in other parts of the world, access to books and the joy of reading is a rare luxury.

Hope for Congo is collaborating with several ministries to establish a media center in Kinshasa, the capital city of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Through this collaboration we hope to provide literature and books to enrich, challenge and transform the lives of believers. We also hope to share God’s Word with those who do not yet know Him.

To achieve this, our goal is to raise $60,000. We need $23,000 more to reach this goal.

Micro Print-On-Demand Technology
Print-On-Demand technology will enable us to print Christian literature at an affordable price in both single and large quantities.

Generous Crop
In II Corinthians 9:6-7, Paul talks about the ministry of giving. We are to give willingly and cheerfully, not out of a sense of pressure or grudgingly. Paul goes on to say, “The one who plants generously will get a generous crop.”

This Print-On-Demand technology will allow God’s Word to be shared with more of our dear brothers and sisters in the DRC. In other words, more Bibles and more Christian literature leads to more generous planting.

Is God nudging you to give to this exciting project?

God Loves Cheerful Givers
God does not want you to give out of compulsion or grudgingly. But with a grateful heart for all He has entrusted with you.
