Hope for Congo is celebrating its 15th year, “Providing Hope to the Next Generation.” Our mission is to provide the next generation with tools and resources that will strengthen the body, mind, and soul.
A look back encourages us to keep moving forward. Looking forward informs us of the direction we should consider. Looking forward tells us we cannot afford to wait! It is estimated that by the year 2075 Kinshasa, the capital city of the Democratic Republic of Congo, will be the largest city in the world with an estimated population of 58 million. Starvation on every level is the reality in Congo today. While food is a daily challenge, so is the lack of spiritual nourishment for the soul. Both need to be addressed.
One of the answers to the nourishment of the soul can be addressed through digital technology. Print on Demand (POD), includes printing books, pamphlets and other literature in single copies as needed. It has the potential to revolutionize the spiritual life of individuals as well as the larger church body. Access to affordable Bibles and Christian literature does not exist today in Congo.
Since the invention of the printing press, by Johannes Gutenberg in 1439, printing has come to be known as one of the most important inventions of our time. 500 years later Print on Demand is a current technology that is revolutionizing the printing industry.
Hope for Congo is in the process of raising $60,000 to establish a POD Media Center. We have raised $46,000 and we need another $14,000 before we can officially release this project.
A crowdfunding page has been set up for interested people to participate as God directs. Innovation, technology and crowd funding has the ring of the 21st century, however that bell has been ringing for centuries. Ecclesiastes says, “there is nothing new under the sun”. It has all been done before. Exodus 35-40 records the story and events surrounding the building of the tabernacle. God was all about innovation, technology, crowdsourcing and funding for His project. God has not changed!
