Project: Christian Education for Children in Wembo Nyama Area

 

Purpose: To encourage and support a program of Christian Education in the Wembo-Nyama area that has an abundance of children living near the mission center and in the nearby villages.

 

Materials to support the curriculum. This would include such things as visuals (posters, books, flannel graphs, coloring pages), Bibles or portions of scripture, craft and recreational supplies.   Cost:  $75/month

Wembo Nyama Ed Materials 162.12

Rationale:  Wembo has been called the “cradle of Methodism” and “Spiritual Heart” of the Congo. Because of early missionary work, Wembo has been a center of education and spiritual direction. Many leaders in the church, government and society have originated out of the Wembo area. One can only imagine how the impact could be even great if children were taught the stories of scripture and encouraged in their relationships with God at an even younger age. While the children are welcome in the church service, a “Sunday School” or midweek opportunities for children are not offered at present. Few materials such as posters, Bible story books and other visuals are available.

Rationale:  Because of early missionary work a hospital was built in these villages that provide medical care for large populations coming from surrounding villages. The Hospitals need major repairs as well as supplies/resources. Our support represents our desire to encourage the staff in their work as we determine if and how we can respond to long term needs in these areas.
