Teaching in Bukavu via Zoom

Dear Friends,

        I have a real pleasure to thank God and my partners in ALERT ministry for making live the connection with my people in Congo. 

        I was supposed to travel to Congo for teaching at Bukavu Bible College and conducting seminars in churches. Unfortunately, the Corona pandemic and traveling restrictions stopped our project after many attempts.  However,  I am now supporting teachers and event teaching a class  "The Intertestamental Period" through Zoom. Each time we met with the students, it was joyful moment though physical presence in a classroom still more much appreciated.

        I am praying to God to provide financial support in order to continue with Zoom as I have to pay $20 to buy data each time I have a class with the students. This academic year (2021 – 22),  I am projecting to have 2 more teachers on Zoom as long as the traveling conditions will remain the same. Pray for this need and contact us for more information if needed.

Bukavu Bible School Update - Aug. 2021

Dear Friends and partners in the Ministry,

         It is my pleasure to touch base again with you to update information concerning the Bukavu Bible College. The school has closed since July 20, 21. Students are on the Summer break and will come back on October 20th. The academic year 2020-21 was full of challenges as we keep reorganizing the school (administration and program) after it has been many years without functioning because of the loss of much of its assets and the insecurity during the war. 

         However, by his grace, the Lord made us go through successfully. With difficulties and very limited financial possibilities, It is amazing to see how people are thirsting to study the Word of God. Is not this confirming what one said that you see the stars when the sky is dark ?

While we are looking for local means to sustain the school, we are asking financial support for our students and kind gifts for teachers who are benevolent. Only $150 per year will contribute to support a student. That is an opportunity to invest in the Kingdom of God where mold and ants do not reach out to destroy treasures.

         Needless to remind that the Democratic Republic of Congo is slowly coming out of wars and political instability. Hopefully the recent signaled presence of American troops on the ground will improve much more the situation in the provinces of Ituri and North Kivu with an expected great domino effect in South Kivu province and the rest of the country.

I'm Honored To Serve

I am honored to be asked and humbled to take on the task of accepting the new role of the Acting Principal of Bukavu Bible College in eastern Congo, South Kivu Province. I am trusting the Lord and leaning on his strength for this new leadership role. I have often been reminded of this verse in the last several months. “And what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also” (2Tim. 2:2).

Bukavu Bible College opened its doors November 20, 2020 after ten years of inactivity due to a long period of war, loss of its infrastructure, and contagious diseases (Ebola, Covid). Thank God that the School has newly renovated classrooms and dormitory and is able to open its doors to students desiring to serve the church in Congo. Please pray for these teachers and students as they need our prayers and encouragement. I am thankful to God for providing each one of these dedicated teachers and students who has accepted to live sacrificially as they serve.

"Moving ahead by faith



Some of the challenges"


•"My colleague Kisongo Mbeleulu and I had several delays in obtaining our visas. They are (were) still not in yet.." Our flight was delayed and that gave us time to get the visas delivered! It's along story but I have "un-friended" UPS and am indebted to Kathy for making a mad dash to pick up visas sent to the wrong distribution center while I was negotiating flight plans with the airli...

Wamama wapenzi katika Hospitali ya Panzi,

Mwisho wa mwezi wa pili, sisi (Trudi Whitson na Kris Engel toka Minnesota, USA), tuliwatembelea kwa muda mfupi wakati tulipokuwa hapo Bukavu. Trudi aliwasalimu katika maneno machache na mchungaji Malanda akawaombea na mlitupokea katika furaha. Tunasikitika kwamba hapakuwepo na mda wa kutosha kwa kujuana kabisa nanyi.

Tunajuwa kwamba wengi wenu wapo hapo hospitali kwa sababu ya shida ya miili na mateso mliohipitia hata kimawazo pia (traumat...
