Throughout our years in Africa and Europe we have been aware of the growing number of displaced people. As our circle of influence grows, our contact with these people searching for stability increases. With each passing day new and varied opportunities are encountered and we are trusting God to give us wisdom about expressing the Love of God.
Each year, we are involved in several camps that are a tremendous outreach. Both in Europe and Africa, camps bring in people that would remain in the margins.
If we are going to "help without hurting", then partnership with a local ministry like The Bethesda Homes is essential. People and philosophy that you can trust.
Emphasizing a well rounded approach to life with God at the center has produced a healthy environment for our children.They are happy and flourishing at school and in the community.
Since our arrival in Kinshasa in the mid-80's, we have been involved in leadership training and development. There are now training institutions in Congo DRC, Ivory Coast, and Rep. of Congo.
The objective of nearly every project is ultimately church planting. We do many things that are an expression of God's love, but the definitive task is planting a church following the New Testament principle. We are currently involved in our 37th local church plant since 1986.
