Missions in D.R. Congo
We have walked quite a journey in the area of missions, and we are not finished. From helping Mama Jeanne feed the children and widows she cares for at her orphanage in Goma, Congo, to building a church and community centre to house our Harvest Church Congo and a place for the locals to meet, this is what we do. Why? Simply because we believe that we live in one of the most blessed countries in the world and it is our mandate to bless others; and because James 1:27 says this:
“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”
So it is with that in mind that we continue to raise money and send support to our friends in Goma, Congo Africa.
Since 1993, Mamma Jeanne and her staff have cared for more than 800 children. Some have been reunited with their relatives. Many have been victims of rape, and a small number have been infected by HIV/AIDS. The goals of Mamma Jeanne’s home are to work to reunite separated children with relatives, care for the children physically, and provide them with love and counseling to aid in their healing after severe trauma (witnessing murder, rape, beatings, etc.), and to provide the children with an opportunity to attend school.
Harvest Ministries Canada works in conjunction with Be A Hero in raising sponsorship and financial resources for Orphans and various projects in Goma City, Congo, Africa. For complete information on the completed work and work in progress in Goma and our Orphanage click here.
