May this wonderful holiday season bring us ever closer to our loved ones and deeper in love with our God.
2021 has been a busy year for Rise Congo. Our college teachers have made several teaching trips to train our next group of church-planting pastors who are graduating in the Spring of 2022. We will have 13 new pastors, each needing $100 a month in support.
Covid-19 influenced our school year to end late. We have been building our two story Academy building all year long, as God provides the finances. Our goal is to finish the bottom story by January 1st, 2022.
Our new academic year started in November. We now have over 1,000 children in our elementary school and 250 in our secondary school. Each Academy building houses 300 students. Due to rapid, unexpected growth, we are building a second story. Currently, to accommodate these children, we are using our temporary wood building, church, and the unfinished first floor for the overflow.
