An estimated 18 million rural tribesman live along the 14 000 km of the Congo River and its tributaries. Johan is a Frontline missionary with a naval background. For over 3 years he has been preparing to launch a mission to the Congo River Basin, ministering to the isolated villages and homesteads along the Congo River and it’s tributaries.
Early in May, Johan headed out for three and a half months investigative outreach to the Democratic Republic of the Congo. So much had happened since he first presented his Congo River mission vision when he was taking part in our Great Commission Course last year.
His report back was what you would expect from a dedicated Christian missionary who had previously been a career officer in the navy. He came with maps and charts, photo albums, well organised flip-files of reports, and a well-illustrated PowerPoint slide presentation on the objectives, findings, prayer points and strategy for the future.
