Pastor Dunia has been serving the people of the DRC for 13 years as the leader of the pentecostal church in Kitchanga.  Like a lot of the region in the DRC, he serves those living in war-torn places and has been a witness to people dying right before his eyes.  He says he “trusts in God for his protection day by day”.  He has enrolled in the Common Ground Academy through African Leadership.

"It has been a great help to expand his mind in biblical knowledge, grow spiritually, and to increase my capacity in teaching.” “ It is very powerful and a great help for our churches in training the church leaders and to equip them in my areas because there are no other bible schools.”

His prayers are for different parts of the country to have access to this same learning since most are no where near a college or biblical institute.  He also wishes for his fellow pastors and leaders to have training to deal with the trauma that is prevalent among these communities where war have been a part of their situation for a long time.

“Thank you for the training and be with us in prayer."
