Congo and Sudan

Photo: In Lugufu Congolese refugee camp I first went to Goma in Congo in 1992 with Bishop Robert Mkona. It was an arduous three day journey (not least because I was brought down with cerebral malaria throughout the trip!) but this single trip left a place in my heart for the Congolese. I made a similarly arduous journey to Aba, traveling by road from N. Uganda via Yei in S. Sudan. We had protection from members of the SPLA which eased our journey.

The war in Eastern Congo made it more difficult and dangerous for general travel. I got close again when I saw Bukavu from across the river at Cyangugu in Rwanda but did not cross into Congo at that time.

My main ministry to the Congolese until 2008 had actually been in Nairobi. Pastor Jeremiah Rukukuye established three congregations in Nairobi made up principally of refugees. These churches remain, although Pastor jeremiah now lives in Kampala in Uganda. I have taken many seminars for their ministry, Christ Ambassadors Fellowship. This, combined with two visits to the refugee camps in Tanzania was part of a two pronged strategy that eventually took me to Uvira in Eastern Congo. Security has improved and many refugees have returned home. Pastor Jeremiah went to visit his family and laid the foundations for a visit and I reached Uvira in the Congo in May 2008. There is a tremendous amount of work and opportunity for the church now it has returned home. It was a privilege to be able to serve them with seminars and a little teaching in their newly established Bible School.

With the peace agreement being signed and with the possible secession of the south in a few years time again the opportunities are wonderful. Although I have lost touch with Bishop Taban in Yei, I am happy that Bishop Wanjala in Nairobi is one of many Kenyan pastors who are establishing ministry links and I regret that I shall probably not return to these wonderful people
