Chers amis, famille, partenaires du royaume de Dieu,

In writing this update, I feel a little like Paul addressing the Corinthians.

I’ve been praying for each of you (I’m keeping a journal with your prayer requests) and I’m trusting that the truth of the Word may be manifest in you, and through you.

In Him you are enriched with readiness to speak of this Hope — the Hope that we have in Him, and through Him; to give a clear witness for Christ the Messiah, which is confirmed in you by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Thank you for your continued prayers, and partnership in the Kingdom!

Our team so currently on Expedition in the Mwadingusha area.

Expeditions are grassroots Evangelical pursuits in which we declare the Kingdom, lay hands on the sick for healing and deliverance, and encourage believers to continue in faith.

Overland Missions is an interdenominational organisation, and our focus is the establishing of Biblical foundations, equipping leadership, and empowering communities with practical means, rooted in Scripture. We do whatever it takes to go to unreached people groups in remote locations, in order to share the Gospel. Any road. Any load. Any time.

Today our teams ventured out Lukoshi, a new area of ministry on the other side of the lake, to share the Gospel with this community.

We had a really good day of ministry 🙌🏼

I preached the Gospel to about 200 people who were gathered at Chief Mwadingusha’s palace, and after the message, we split into teams and did home visits. Our team already carries reports of people turning, or returning to God, locals heats and lives are touched by the Holy Spirit, and many hear the Gospel for the first time.

In the end, it’s not about the statistics or the adventure!
We run, and push forward with this message of Good News because He is worthy — for the glory of His Name and the sake of His kingdom!

I hope to share more testimonies with you soon!

Please continue to pray for the harvest here in DRC! There are many who seek after Truth, even though generation after generation have hardened their hearts against exploitation. Already there’s the rumbling of revival in the Spirit.

• a missionary friend who’s been labouring for the Kingdom in Ukraine passed away last night. Please keep the Potgieter family in your prayers as they continue trusting God for great breakthrough in this nation!

• pray for labourers — we are trusting God to add to our team! We are actively looking for people to join our team here in DRC with boots on the ground. Please stand with us in faith for a team who love God, and who love His people, who feel specifically called to live and work here with us.

• the harvest — among the Congolese there are many religious peoples, but it’s birthed out of years of tradition, lacking relationship and depth, and is often accompanied by the occult. Yet it proves a desperation for a Truth that is deeper than the surface. Please continue to pray for this wonderful nation, that their hearts will be yielded to the Holy Spirit, and that they will take hold of the Truth.

Blessings in Christ

P.S. please continue to let me know how I can pray for you!
