In July, 2005 Evangelist Hakim Samuel and his 12 person evangelism team traveled south to Watsa, Sesege, Duruba, Kilomine, Faradje, and Aba, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). The team left Yei, Sudan on June 18 and returned on August 15.

The results of what God did through the evangelism team are listed below:

Watsa 2,750
Sesege 3,000
Duruba 2,300
Kilomine 1,800

Total 11,450

The JESUS Film was shown in the Lingala language and the Kakwa, Logo, Avokaya, Mundu, and Mulendu tribes were primarily reached. Approximately 55% of the new believers had been animists and 2% had been Muslims.

During this trip the team conducted discipleship training. Most of the teachings were on leadership training. The team taught mainly from 1st and 2nd Timothy and Titus.

Regarding follow-up, the new believers were handed over to the Community Evangelical Church of the Congo, the Evangelical Presbyterian Church, and the Pentecostal Church of Congo. The evangelism team distributed 500 bibles in the Lingala language.

A powerful magician (witch doctor) made a decision for Christ. This magician was known for his great power and authority. Over the years he had made a lot of money from his magic especially from local gold miners. He said that he saw the Jesus Film and heard our team’s preaching during our team’s last trip to this area in June of 2004. After our team left, Jesus began appearing to him in dreams. In the dreams Jesus told him that our evangelism team was sent to his town to tell him to repent of his sins and to stop deceiving the people. Jesus told him if he did not repent he might make money on earth, but after he died he would burn forever in fire. He said in some dreams he was taken by Jesus to observe hell. In hell he was shown how magicians who have died are suffering waiting for the Day of Judgment. After these dreams he repented publicly and many people made decisions for Jesus after hearing his story. The magician said he was going to give money back to the people he had recently deceived. He also asked forgiveness from the people he had deceived over the years. This news was greeted by great joy by the churches of this town and the local authorities.
