The work of the 7th Annual Conference session of Kivu continued on Monday at the local Samaria Office. After the meditation, the delegates met in committee.
Meditation of the day: Jesus is the answer to our problems
The opening meditation of the annual conference of Kivu was the preaching of the Rev. Paul Ketoka Lokondo. He drew his preaching in the books of John 21:5-6 and James 4:17 under the theme: Jesus is the answer to our problems. Be an answer to the problems of others like the Good Samaritan, like Jesus and his disciples who had fished all night without having anything. Like Elisha who solved the problems of a young man whose axe was soaked in water. As a Christian who follow Jesus Christ, you must be a solution to any problem that arises with you or in your surroundings. At home, in the church, in society where you are in your Conference and Episcopal region, for it is said that he who knows how to do good and if he does, he commits a sin as it is written in James 4:17. If we practice what we learn, the 1 dollar we will contribute in view of our statistics will solve the problem of buying church land, mentoring orphans, finding solution to the communication file and doing this Jesus will and our episcopal region will move forward.

My Lord Bishop Unda has invited his Chief of Staff to talk about how the assessment will be done. He emphasized the assessment of what last year's $1 contributions did. Thus, for greater transparency, the evaluation will be made from the basis where the contributions were made, up to the level of cash that received payments. Our missionary Collins left Goma on Monday to return to Kinshasa. Before he left, the Rev. Omole presented him with a gift on behalf of the Annual Conference of Kivu.
