The next trip to Bukavu, DR Congo is set for October 11-24, 2010. Indeed, what will God do? It is clear that we are inadequate for the challenge. The breadth and depth of corruption is not to be believed.
The goal for the trip is to continue building relationships that we established on the last trip. We intend to meet with pastors and entrepreneurs to brainstorm business opportunities that will help lift people out of poverty while providing a platform to proclaim the saving grace of Jesus Christ. We will also distribute Swahili Bibles and solar powered MP3 players with the New Testament in Swahili. As we distribute these Bibles, we intend to train people in basic Bible study methods.
Finally, and perhaps most importantly, we will be recruiting people to pray for the recipients of the Bibles — that God will use His Word to transform the lives of people — a prayer that we know He will answer.
So that’s it — the Bible, prayer, encouragement and some training. We trust that God will cause the growth from the seeds that we will plant.
