There is a couple in our church here that I have known for as long as I can remember. Keith and Florence have devoted much of their life to ministry and training and advocacy for the people of the Democratic Republic of Congo, and I am privileged to sort of share some office space with Keith (who travels regularly to the Congo in his ministry role for our denomination) in our church building. Keith and Florence have been role models and examples to me my whole life, and I appreciate the ways that their presence in our congregation here reminds us regularly of what our sisters and brothers in Christ are experiencing in the Congo. Looking at Keith during worship, I can sometimes almost physically see his concern, the ache of his spirit, for a people he knows and loves.
I came across this at Brad Boydston’s blog this morning and while I can’t figure out how to post the graphic here, I want to post the link here and encourage you to take a look.
