Praise God for the generous outpouring of financial gifts to AIMM for Damien and Sylvie. These gifts are also part of the healing process for them.

Please continue to pray for their complete healing. Damien is receiving good care. As mentioned previously, quiet and rest are essential for healing of brain injuries.

Update on Damien and Sylvie

12032279_10153518690644473_9184883280453132840_nIt looks very much like our prayers are having an effect. Please continue to pray for complete healing. We are fearfully and wonderfully made. The brain needs quiet and rest in order to heal after a head injury.  Below is an excerpt from an update regarding their condition.

Charles Buller with Congo Leadership Support was able to talk briefly with Sylvie (wife of coaching network team member, Damien) on September 24th by phone. She and Damien are resting and recuperating following the assault by bandits last Saturday. She sounded positive and hopeful. Apparently surgery for Damien may not be necessary. They were instructed to stay in a quiet place to give medications a chance to work. (And a time for God to do His sacred work of healing.)

The costs for their care and long-term healing will outstrip Damien and Sylvie’s financial resources by many fold. Whatever you would be willing to contribute toward their financial needs – even $5 or $10 will be an invaluable investment in the lives of these two servants. Checks can be made to AIMM, P.O. Box 744, Goshen, IN 46527; or in Canada, 440 Main St., Steinbach, MB R5G 1Z5. Please clearly designate on your check, Kakhenda medical expenses.

Congo Leadership Support Network, Week 3

12022520_10153497072834473_3982604055302065183_oHere are a few more photos from the work of the Congo Leadership Support Network. Charles Buller 11987192_10153483621794473_5803144854275168977_nreports that Adam and Bill left on Sunday after all of them were able to participate in worship at a protestant church in Kinshasa. They all shared a Congolese meal that was “to die for” before they left. (Anybody jealous?)

11999010_10153496998089473_534473538574673443_nCharles is thankful to report that the pace of meetings have slowed, but important work is still being done. They have planned the next steps as they move toward putting the Leadership Coaching Network in place. May their plans succeed to make meaningful contributions to the lives of leaders.12002252_10153483622234473_6183182241427902953_n

Congo News

Charles Buller of the Congo Leadership Support Network is on his way to Congo for three weeks. At least two miracles reported thus far:

  1. Even though his Congo visa was delayed amazing progress occurred. The Congo embassy received, issued, and returned his passport in one day. That had to be God’s intervention.
  2. Thanks to free wifi Charles was able to skype with Leonard in Kinshasa. Leonard got a team together in Congo to pray for Charles and their plans. This was another miracle since the prayer partners are dispersed throughout the city.11951289_10153451217359473_6601374479789068483_n
