I will be serving in the Democratic Republic of Congo with Congo Initiative.

The Congo Initiative (CI) is doing a new thing in a region of Eastern Congo that suffered under a history of war and violence. CI is looking to train the next generation of leaders of Congo to bring about change through a number or different ministries including education, economic development, holistic family development and governance.

My role at Congo Initiative will be to design and implement financial processes to better manage and track budgets throughout the organization. A large part of this responsibility will be to train up a team to continue to improve the administrative processes, to ensure that CI not only makes an impact in Eastern Congo but also is a good steward of the gifts and donation with which it is entrusted.

Prayer Requests:

  • For wisdom to take my experience and knowledge and adapt as an accountant and business consultant to fit the Congolese context.
  • For patience and effective communication as I train the Finance team on financial management processes.
  • For physical, emotional and spiritual health as I embark on a new challenge
