WRITE A LETTER OF ENCOURAGEMENT

When Georgine in DRC waved goodbye to her husband Dieudonne the morning of January 4th, 2020, she had no idea that she would never see him again. Dieudonne went to their farm to harvest palm nuts where Georgine would join him after she had finished cooking for the children.

“I arrived at the farm only to find his bicycle abandoned along the road. I called his name, but no one responded…”His body was found a few days later. He had been killed in the typical ADF style at least one day earlier. He was only 30 years old and a teacher at the EERA Pentecostal church school.

Though she is heartbroken, it seems our visit has helped lift her spirit momentarily. “I want to thank Christians who think about me. I am pleased to know that people are praying for me.”

Georgine and her children are heartbroken. The children have been severely traumatized by the sudden loss of their father. We invite supporters to write Georgine and her children letters of encouragement.

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

James 1:27
