Nazarene Boat Ministry in Maniema District

Along the Congo River, we have more than 30 preaching points and organized churches.  There are no other means of transportation to reach these areas.  No vehicles or motorcycles, just boats flowing on the river.

Give to the King of Kings

Did you know that in the temple there was never made a chair?  The priestly duty was never done; Always a need to make sacrifices for the sins of the people. But when Jesus had paid the price on the cross, He said “It is finished” and then He sat down at the right hand…

The Adventure of the Unknown

I stepped across the puddles and perched myself on the curb hoping for bus ride. Van after van passed by with a young guy hanging out the door shouting the destination. I told the young guy at the stand I wanted to go to Suhum. Eventually he identified my minibus, gave me the front seat…
