    Pray for the Upcoming Congo River Mission

    The goal of the Congo River Mission is:
    To mobilise and coordinate an effective mission to evangelise and disciple the unreached people in the Congo River basin.
    Why do we do it?
    The excellent work begun by Dr .David Livingstone and the Baptist Missionary Society suffered some neglect by the late 1950s. Communist revolution and terrorism in the 1960s wrecked havoc amongst the Christian communities in the Congo. Many missionaries, pastors and evangelists were martyred during those upheavels. God’s Great Commission work along the Congo River is far from complete. Establishing sustainable missions in central Africa regions is logistically very challenging. However, at Frontline any challenge, especially a neglected or restricted access area in war torn regions of Southern and central Africa, cannot remain untackled. These obstacles must be overcome, the unreached tribes evangelised and remote communities served with the Gospel of Christ. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you.” Isaiah 43:2-4
    It is only Good News if it reaches these people in time.
    Jesus said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to all creation.” – Mark 16:15
    The Harvest is very Large The Needs are Urgent
    An estimated 18 million people are spread out in often very isolated villages in the Congo River basin. Their daily existence is desolate, and they desire more in life. The Congo River is very deep at places. It is a fast-flowing river up to 16 km wide in the rainy season. The distance from Kisangani to Kinshasa is 1 734 km and there are 14 000 km of riverbanks to reach when the many tributaries are considered. River blindness caused by the black fly is prevalent and often goes untreated, leaving many to beg for a living.
    The Strategy to Evangelise the People living in the Congo River Basin
    Our missionary, Johan, who served for many years as an officer in the South African Navy, has travelled the full length of the Congo River and developed this Strategy:
    1. Record each village GPS location and description as unreached or reached as part of the comprehensive church planting program.
    2. Start or continue the saturation church planting model (stream) and schedule the three-year Pastor Training program which will be done from the nearest town at six-month intervals.
    3. Establish and expand the local pastor’s mentorship program.
    4. Make sure the villagers receive Bibles in their local language.
    5. Move on to the next isolated, unreached, or undiscipled village.
    6. Relieve outreach team members as often as international partnerships / volunteers and circumstances allow.
    7. Remain in prayer for provision and perseverance.
    8. Do river trading between riverside villages to help with mission sustainability and local goodwill.
    9. Establishing missionary logistic, outreach, and rural development routes, – in this case between Cape Town (RSA) and Kisangani (DRC).
    “And this Gospel of the Kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.”- Matthew 24:14
