Report from the Congo


Dear Friends at FBC Palo Alto,

Greetings !

World cup fever has even come to Kikongo.

I am in the process distributing the soccer balls now.

Due to church politics, which means collaborating with the Congolese leadership, it has taken awhile to begin the distribution
process. We have churches scattered out all over the countryside and I have not been able to get to many places.

We did have some of the pastors come in for meetings, so some have gone out with them. Other soccer balls were distributed
by air in my amazing flying machine.

Of the 60 , I have distributed so far to twenty villages.

As soon as I put the request in for a project, I went ahead and ordered the soccer balls. I paid for them personally, and
then asked for reimbursement after the funds were sent to BIM.

 I will see how good our connection is today so that I can attach some photos for you.

Thanks for your support of the Congolese children !

The photos are of the local kids gathering their food; caterpillars, crickets, mushrooms, and a local spiney fruit. They consider themselves blessed to have such free food from the forest!
