Angels and Children Orphanage Dedication in Rukanga, Congo
October 26, 2012

On September 9, 2012, a dedication ceremony was held for the completion of the Angels and Children Orphanage in Rukanga, Congo. Construction was completed with the help of the Adventist Development and Relief Agency’s (ADRA) support, and the financial assistance of a sponsor from Brazil. It is able to accommodate 23 children at the present time.

Pioneer Missionary Movement (PMM) missionary, Jung, Hyo Soo, named it “Angels and Children.” He said, “There are a lot of sponsors who are like angels, which inspired the name. It is difficult to manage financially every month because we need approximately $1000.00 USD to pay our bills.

But our children are comfortable; through God's grace they are provided with food and clothing." Church leaders, town leaders, the President of Rukanga University, construction workers, and welfare workers attended the dedication service.

After the service, they had a small party, sharing goat meat, some fruits, and beverages. Even special bread was shared which was made at Bethlehem Bakery which is an Adventist bakery in the Congo.

The fellowship and sharing was warm and enthusiastic. Pastor Jung said, "We thank God for all things. We are in a good environment, and I am sure that our children will become workers of God. Please pray for them."
