Vision Conference Alum Serves Traumatized Children in Congo

Share This Post

Timothy and friends

Several years ago Timothy Odosa served as interpreter for a Vision Conference in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo.

“I can remember the DNA Conference and the experience you shared with us,” Timothy recently wrote to DNA board chair Bob Moffit. “After so many years I can still remember this very truth you shared with us about God multiplying the seed we put into His hands to feed hundreds of other people.”

Timothy reported on what has happened since that conference “to encourage you to continue the good work of God and be sure that what you planted in our hearts a long time ago is producing abundant fruits by God’s grace.”

Kids from Goma refugee camps

In 2008, Timothy led a team that ministered among displaced children in Goma in the eastern part of the DRC.

Today, Timothy leads young volunteers, including “medical doctors, lawyers, and others who are all committed to serving God as we reach out to traumatized children in the DRC.”

Timothy’s job at an embassy in Kinshasa allows him to “bring my little bread or financial support towards the children’s ministry that I’m leading as a volunteer. And it’s such a great joy to see the joy that we can bring to these disfavored and traumatized children of my country.”

He describes his current ministry to these children as follows:

We are bringing God’s love to street children who have been arrested and are being detained in the central prison of Makala in Kinshasa. We tell them Bible stories every week, we bring food and clothes to them, we are doing free medical consultation for those among them who are sick, we are also pleading for their release with the help of our team of lawyers.

This work is being done so far with no financial support from other countries or organisation though we hope that soon we’ll be able to mobilise as much resources as needed to continue doing this work which is our deepest call.

We’re planning on reaching out to other street children and orphans who are taken care of by two other orphanages in Kinshasa. This work will start next month and we thank God for the joy He brings in our hearts as we keep on serving Him.
