On Sunday we will have a very short ceremony in a church service to hand over all our Bana Basi ya Kopela material to Nono, the next leader. Please pray as we finish editing it and making the material usable, in the midst of packing!!

Why “Mighty Deeds”?
I was fifteen years old, living in the rainforests of Congo, and starting an exciting adventure of co-leading a discipleship group for young ladies called BANA BASI YA KOPELA with my dear Congolese friend, Anna.
I was impressed with how David exclaims in the Psalms, "I will proclaim your mighty deeds to the nations!" What better goal could I have, thought I, than to glorify God? I expected God to give me miracles as I obeyed Him, and wanted to start this blog to chronicle them for the dear people who promised to support us with prayer.
God works in mysterious ways and His miracles did come, but not at all as expected.
Now I am eighteen years old, living in "civilized" Canada, with a heart that still beats to the Congo-rhythm. The adventure continues!
These, then, are pages from the story Jesus is writing with my life.
My prayer is that the words written here will be all to God's glory, always.
You have a strong arm;
Your hand is mighty, Your right hand is exalted.
Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne;
Lovingkindness and truth go before You.
How blessed are the people who know the joyful sound!
O LORD, they walk in the light of Your countenance.
In Your name they rejoice all the day,
And by Your righteousness they are exalted.
For You are the glory of their strength,
And by Your favor our horn is exalted.
For our shield belongs to the LORD,
And our king to the Holy One of Israel.
