Well my initial plan was to feature each area that MAF serves in Africa over the next several days as we awaited our field assignment. Change of plans as we were contacted this morning around 7:30 AM and told we will be serving in the East DRC and living in a town called Bunia. In the map here it is in the upper right hand corner by the border of Uganda.
During the presentations at MAF I came away thinking that the East DRC is the region with the most needs. God has prepared Carolyn and I to serve in this harsh environment in the past week by impressing upon us the impact a Christ follow can have on the people who have been left with nothing. The love we can share with them through Christ can be an amazing testimony and give us an opportunity to shine light into a place that is so full of darkness. I will take some more time tonight to share about East DRC, where we will live, and the people we will serve.
