KATANGA











KATANGA IS A SLUM THAT WOULD BE DESCRIBED BY MOST PEOPLE AS A PLACE WHERE THERE IS NOTHING GOOD. PEOPLE WILL SAY THAT ALL THAT YOU WILL FIND IN KATANGA IS DRUNKARDS, PROSTITUTES, WITCH DOCTORS, DRUGS, AND THIEVES. WHILE ALL THESE THINGS ARE TRUE, THERE IS SOMETHING GOOD HAPPENING IN KATANGA, GOD IS IN KATANGA AND THE LOVE OF JESUS IS MOVING THROUGH THIS PLACE. WE SPENT ALL DAY FRIDAY WALKING, VISITING, SHARING, AND LOVING ON THE RESIDENTS OF KATANGA. AS WITH MOST OF OUR AREAS, THERE IS A GREAT NEED FOR EVERYTHING HERE FROM FOOD TO SCHOOL FEES, FROM RENT TO CLOTHES, BUT OF COURSE, THE HOPE THAT JESUS PROVIDES IS WHAT IS MOST NEEDED, AND WE HAVE BEEN BLESSED TO BE ABLE TO TELL THE PEOPLE OF KATANGA ABOUT THIS HOPE AND LOVE THAT JESUS GIVES. WE VISITED IN MANY HOMES AND WERE ABLE TO HEAR THE STORIES OF THE PEOPLE, FROM THE PEOPLE THEMSELVES, STORIES OF HIV, HOPELESSNESS, NEED, AND PRAISES FOR WHAT GOD HAS DONE IN THEIR LIVES. WE PRAYED WITH MANY PEOPLE AND TRIED OUR BEST TO ENCOURAGE THEM TO NOT LOSE HOPE OR FAITH IN THE ONE MOST HIGH GOD. PLEASE DON'T BE SO BUSY WITH YOUR LIVES THAT YOU FORGET THESE CHILDREN OF GOD, THANK YOU.
