Redefined is a Christian organisation and as such is committed to proclaiming and honouring Christ in all of our activities.
Engaging the Local Church
Firstly, we have been building relationship with local churches in our main areas of work; namely, Mahagi town and a village of Jalasiga. The pastors of these churches report a great need for more training and study resources whilst the congregational members have displayed a hunger for teaching and deeper discipleship.
We have also been touched by the response of some churches in Kampala, Uganda, who are eager to give a hand to their neighbouring believers. Several churches are contemplating how they can come in for evangelistic and teaching trips. One church has already enabled us to distribute some small clothes to women of Jalasiga, most of whom have two sets of clothes.
In addition to the above activities, May 2014 also marked the first teaching seminar to be given to local churches. We have been visited by a range of close neighbours and far-travelling internationals. With their helps we have been able to provide Bible training seminars, teachings, discipleship times, and support through prayer. The churches in Mahagi Territory are not just open to discipleship and training, they are eagerly seeking it.
The church and its leaders are also in need of study materials that are in French, or Swahili, translations as most Congolese in this region speak no, or little, English. Bibles are also needed in these languages as well as Alur, as are Sunday School resources. If you are able to help by sending such materials, or if you would like to bring in a church team to minister with us in these congregations, please contact us at: RedefinedMinistriesDRC@gmail.com
