Yesterday, at the close of the Congo Mission Network steering committee meeting I shared the good news that the advanced level training for “Healing Hearts” is planned to be held on the IMCK compound in Tshikaji during the first half of July 2019. It was suggested that I share this news and the need for additional funds to make this successful.
