For the past three years, Covenant congregations across the United States and Canada have held Hope Sundays for Covenant Kids Congo powered by World Vision. During our Hope Sunday, we will hear the great need in DR Congo and the great potential for community transformation. At the end of each service, individuals and families are invited to sponsor children at a sponsorship table.
As the Covenant Church we are moved by stories from DR Congo. Although there are stories of war, profound material need and lack of basic infrastructure we are compelled by a different kind of story: we are compelled by a story of hope for a bright future for the people of Gemena. We stand with our Congolese friends and leaders because they want to keep their children healthy, in school and with opportunities for their dreams to come true. This is the hope that compels us. Joining together with World Vision, this partnership is already seeing sustainable community development changing the lives of thousands through clean water, education, health, agriculture, economic development and advocacy.
