Mission Driven – Panzo Family Update

Update of Arrival in the DRC

We arrived in the DRC in January at Ndjili airport/Kinshasa. The trip was so long, as we had a layover of 7 hours at the Brussels Airport due to connection. A COVID-19 test was required before boarding the airplane from Brussels to Kinshasa. In Kinshasa, we arrived late at night and were required to show proof of a negative Covid-19 test within 72 hours from the day of the original result.  Unfortunately, we were forced to redo another test at the airport at the cost of $45 per person. We were blessed with negative results. Outside of the airport, we met with a CELCCO delegation that received us and escorted us to the hotel, where we prayed together to give thanks to God. After two days of rest in Kinshasa, we continued our trip by car and arrived in Boma on January 12, 2021.

Our team helps by preparing mission-focused resources and training, being available to coach leaders and teams, and by calling every mission district and mission region, at least once a year. The purpose of these calls is to pray with the leaders, to hear how the Holy Spirit is moving in their district, and to encourage them as they serve God’s kingdom.
