Evangelism Trip – Aru District, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC)

In June, 2003 Pastor Manoah Alimasi and his 9 person evangelism team traveled 1 1/2 days south to Aru District, DRC. The team left Yei, Sudan on June 16 and returned on July 1. The team showed the JESUS Film in many towns and villages in the Aru District including Aru, Rodo, Oria, Alzupani, Trudo, Niambere, Beko, Omgbokolo, Ariwara, and Liabu. These towns are up to 50 miles from Aru, DRC, which was our main base. During this evangelism trip a total of 8,500 people were born again as new believers in Jesus. The JESUS Film was shown in the Lingala language. The Lugbara, Kakwa, Kaliko and Alur tribes were reached during this trip. Approximately 55% of the new believers had been animists, and 7% had been Muslims.

The Community Evangelical Church of the Congo (CECA) and the Pentecostal Church will handle all follow-up. The evangelism team distributed 300 Bibles in the Lingala language to born again believers who could read.

The breakdown of expenditures for this evangelism trip are as follows:

Medicine $10
Fuel for the Truck $200
Pay for Truck Driver $30
Pay for the Evangelists (10 x $30) $300
Food and accommodations for Evangelists $850
300 Lingala language Bibles $1,500
TOTAL $2,890
