Congo Helping Hands is distributing school supplies (pens and notebooks) to needy elementary students in Kananga. Our partner, Jim Mukenge, selected 12 schools. Today is day one of the distribution. The children says Thank You to not only to Jeff (Mullins, our Director for Catholic Missions), to Woody (Collins, President and Director for Presbyterian Missions), and to Jim (Mukenge, Partner and Provincial Deputy). Also, our thanks to Mama Bernadette Ngalula.
A new written language is about to be born in rural Congo near Kindu. The end result will be a new written Bible for a tribal group. The linguistics group overnight-ed at MPH before departing on this exciting mission.
I am filling-in as manager of the Methodist Presbyterian Hostel (MPH) Guesthouse until the manager returns from the states. I have been using MPH for over 20 years. But now I get a chance to see the MPH from the other side of the check-in desk. This is Day 21 in this assignment.
