This month our church is doing a special offering for Compassion for Congo, a ministry very near and dear to my heart and my family. For those outside our church, you can also give directly for their needs through Community Bible Church at this link: http://www.compassionforcongo.org/
The churches and children there are in desperate need as war and the pandemic has decimated their economy that was already one of the world's worst. I have spent many weeks with this mission and my son is from this mission before we adopted him from the orphanage there and I cannot commend this ministry too highly.
Click here for a nice Sacramento Bee article (Region cover story) on Compassion for Congo to read more. This was a feature article on the ministry and families in our area who have adopted kids from this same small orphanage (there are 10-20 of these precious kids in California, many within a couple hours of each other).
The same newspaper also did a video story from Family Camp where Jaime and I and the Wilmarths tell more of our story and experiences.
Click here for an interview I did with KFIA radio station talking more about the mission
Lastly, here are a couple blogs I wrote in 2011 that tell more of the story God wrote in our lives and continues to write.
