Much in the north east of the Democratic Republic of the Congo will be encouraged and strengthened by the Good News and the teachings of Jesus Christ. Church plants with Centres of Excellence that connect congregations and communities provide a salt, light and (Kingdom) yeast catalyst to serve man, beast and nature to the glory of our Living God!
I have been asked if we should not just rather focus on self-preservation and keeping the home fires burning in these signs and times? It might be a nice way of saying just go with the new flow, a new reset instead of a reformation and restoration to righteousness and maintaining hard-fought Christian values. Why bother with Africa if a new happiness without God is being prepared for us? Many seem keen to rather stay now, eagerly serving a new cult – Go ye! forgotten.
There are those, also in Christian church circles, who say “leave them be” or “they won’t understand the Gospel”, it is too far and too expensive! What a waste of money, time and resources! Yet, although the roads are difficult, all the nations should hear the Good News. The Bible and the Great Commission tell us so! Please help to position sustainable outreach to the isolated villages along the Congo River and a way to get there.
Beyond the Silverback Gorillas in the rainforests of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, along the Congo River and its tributaries, are isolated villages that have not heard the Good News first hand! How long still will the Church linger to send those who said: “here I am, send me!” – in order to fully obey the Great Commission?
While many Christians now await Jesus’ soon return or the Rapture, no prophecy nor the Bible Book of Revelation puts a pause or cancel clause to the Great Commission. While pressures, anarchy, iniquity and manipulation increase, the obedient work to help save many to the glory of God must be done! Where would YOU prefer to meet our returning Saviour? Playing TV games, in the pavilions next to the big league sports field, in comfortable pews, parading the latest fads and fashions or in the mission fields from Jerusalem to the ends of the earth?
Only the light can dispel darkness! The Congo is perceived as brutal, therefore the Church keeps a distance. Because the Church keeps a distance, the Congo remains brutal!
How would every nation, tribe, people and tongues glorify God if they had not been told the Good News? Go ye!
How the post-modern times in and around the Church seem to have changed! Neither the Church nor Missionaries obey the Author of our Faith and the Great Commission any more. A new god in the image of man and international governments is now revered and obeyed world-wide.
What a special time in history to say “send me” as a Disciple with the Good News, – right up to the ends of the earth and isolated villages along the Congo River! Please help to mobilise for mission and to help rally international Christian, church and mission organizations’ support for a free, informed and just choice Global passport for Purposed Pilgrims in the Great Commission!
The Okapi occurs in the rain forests of the North-eastern parts of the DR Congo. Beyond the Okapi, on the way to Kisangani, there are still villages that have not heard the Good News of Salvation and the Kingdom of God first hand! Please pray and partner with Congo River Mission!
