About Democratic Republic of the Congo

Democratic Republic of the Congo is located on the coastline of the Atlantic Ocean in central Africa. It is the second largest country on the continent. The capital, Kinshasa, is located on the Congo River and is the largest city in central Africa. The city serves as the country’s official administrative, economic, and cultural center. The Democratic Republic of Congo is 60% tropical rainforest. The rest of the nation is grasslands and bush... in the central and southwest portions, and forest in the north. The Congo is rich in natural resources,boasting vast deposits of diamonds, cobalt, and copper. In addition, it has one of the largest forest reserves in Africa and about half of the hydroelectric potential of the continent. Congo’s rate of natural increase is among the highest in the world. More than two-fifths of the population is younger than age 15, with three-fourths under the age 30. There is only a small fraction of the population over 60. Due to a lack of proper medical care, along with poverty, violence, and disease the life expectancy is below global average. With over 228 people groups within this nation, there are 2 unreached people groups left.

What's Happening in Democratic Republic of Congo

The Congo is a broken nation  in desperate need of the Gospel.  Although many claim to be Christian, they follow the  fetishes and beliefs of their culture.   We are encouraged however as the love of Jesus is penetrating the hearts of the people.  We  are seeing great results from Live Schools and Farming God's Way.   Recently, a renown pastor in the Congo went through Live School and Farming God's Way.  The Holy Spirit spoke to him and he realized he was... not a follower of Christ.  He made a public declaration of his new faith in Christ by being baptized and then went on national radio to share his testimony of salvation.  There are stories like this all the time that we are hearing of lives being radically transformed by the power of Jesus!  The harvest is ripe in the Congo!
