A Congolese pastor overcomes fear of preaching in remote communitieshttps://www.mennonitemission.net/blog/5012/A-Congolese-pastor-overcomes-fear-of-preaching-in-remote-communitiesA Congolese pastor overcomes fear of preaching in remote communitiesBy Bercie Mundedi<p> <em>Bercie Mundedi</em><em> was one of the first three women ordained by the Mennonite Church of Congo, a Mission Network partner, in 2013 and </em> <a href="/news/3213/First%20woman%20to%20direct%20Mennonite%20Bible%20school%20in%20Congo"> <em>the</em><em>first Congolese woman to direct a Mennonite Church of Congo institution.</em></a><em> She is part of the Africa Leadership Coaching Network, which brings seminars and workshops to underserved communities in Angola and the Democratic Republic of Congo.</em><br></p><p>To go or not to go? This was the question I had been wrestling with. I had just received word that two of my children were ill. My son had been rushed to a hospital in Kenya, where he lives, and my daughter was in a hospital in Muanda, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), where she lives with her husband. My heart wanted to be with my children in their time of crisis more than anything else. <br></p><p>As I prayed about what I was being called to do, Jesus' invitation to share the life-giving message of salvation throughout the whole world grabbed my attention and settled my heart. I was especially comforted by Jesus' words in Matthew 28:18-20 (NIV), "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to<strong><em> </em></strong>me," and his follow-up promise, "I am with you always." Faith and peace welled up in my heart. If I gave myself to Jesus' mission, Jesus would take care of my children. So I decided to join the Africa Leadership Coaching Network coaching team that was traveling to Lunyeka, DRC.<br></p><p>But to be honest, there was one other fear that I had been struggling with: Was I up to exposing myself to a cultural environment that historically gave women very little consideration or value?<em> </em>Overcoming this fear has been a long journey for me, even though I have been an ordained pastor in the Mennonite Church for 10 years. Again, I had to decide to trust Jesus and push through this fear. The Holy Spirit kept reminding me that the opinions men have toward women do not decide my value and they do not decide the value of the women we would be encountering at Lunyeka. <br></p><p>On the way to Lunyeka, we stopped at Katalayi, where we found a Mennonite community gathered and waiting for our arrival. I immediately noticed the crowd of curious children, who were eager to meet our team of six people on three motorbikes. Brother Charles Buller said to me, "Sister, in my opinion, we need to give a message to these dear children." So I addressed the children, telling of God's love for each of them. Then, the Holy Spirit prompted me to ask the girls, "Who among you girls aspires to be a pastor, like me, someday?" A few girls raised their hands. I congratulated them on their courage! Their courage comforted me and reassured me that I would be useful in Lunyeka. <br></p><p>As we journeyed on, we came to a place on a sandy road that had deep ruts. Suddenly my driver took a hard fall and went sprawling. I felt a sharp pain in my rib cage. "Oh no, another health problem, and this time it's me," I thought. We had no choice but to get back on the motorbike and drive on. Fortunately, my injuries were not too serious, although they did prevent me from lifting things and sleeping on my affected side for the remainder of our mission. <br></p><p>In Lunyeka, we presented a seminar, "How to Build a Transformational Team," and a workshop, "How to Cultivate a Transformational Marriage." During our presentations, we worked as a team, with everyone playing a vital role. I noticed that every time I spoke, the people listened attentively. This response was the opposite of what I had feared. While the men seemed interested, the women were ecstatic! Following my Sunday morning sermon, the women spontaneously rose to their feet and moved to the center of the gathering, where they danced and danced. The men joined in from the sidelines. <br></p><p>Through this experience, the Holy Spirit convinced me that the church must take the initiative to go to the people and not wait for the people to come to the church. Following the example of Jesus, we must be willing to go to the dishonest businessmen, prostitutes and people of minority groups. Jesus came to save the sick and the lost. It is up to us to step out of our safe places and confidently bring the love, salvation and peace of Christ to those in need. <br></p><div class="ms-rtestate-read ms-rte-embedcode ms-rte-embedil ms-rtestate-notify"> <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/0C04jY0O6hI?si=BIpX388V8ymCczzw" title="YouTube video player" frameborder="0"></iframe> </div><h4>Join the Africa Leadership Coaching Network as they minister in Lunyeka, DRC. Videographer: Charles Buller<br></h4><p>By God's grace, during our journey to Lunyeka, my two sick children were released from the hospitals where they were patients, and they are now doing much better. I have experienced God's favor over illness and over fear. I want to thank everyone who prayed and contributed to making our journey to Lunyeka possible. Together, let's not allow fear and despair to stop us from reaching out to those in need of Christ's love.<br></p>

Women and Peace workshop in Colombia inspires hope in time of crisishttps://www.mennonitemission.net/blog/4989/Women-and-Peace-workshop-in-Colombia-inspires-hope-in-time-of-crisisWomen and Peace workshop in Colombia inspires hope in time of crisisBy Bekah York<p>I have been involved in a variety of accompaniment ministries over the past several months. One of these experiences was with <em>Justapaz </em>(the peacebuilding organization of the Colombian Mennonite Church) in Chocó, the most biodiverse region in the world, and the only place in the world with both Atlantic and Pacific coastlines.  </p><p>It is inhabited mostly by Afro-Colombian, Indigenous and mestizo communities. Precisely because of its remote location with two coasts, biodiversity and rich natural resources, Chocó is vulnerable to armed groups and illicit economic activities, including drug trafficking, which has a profound impact on the safety and well-being of the people. </p><p>Illegal logging, mining and deforestation threaten the lush rainforests and critical waterways, both of which are important sources of food and water.</p><p>Chocó continues to experience alarming levels of violence and a serious humanitarian crisis, despite the signing of the <a href="https://www.peaceagreements.org/wview/1845/Final%20Agreement%20to%20End%20the%20Armed%20Conflict%20and%20Build%20a%20Stable%20and%20Lasting%20Peace">2016 peace accord</a> between the Republic of Colombia and <em>Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia - Ejército del Pueblo</em> (Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia - People's Army, FARC-EP), which had given many people hope that the violence would finally stop. </p><p>The paradox is that, despite its profound natural wealth, Chocó is one of the poorest regions in Colombia, with % of its population living under <a href="https://www.worldbank.org/en/topic/poverty/brief/multidimensional-poverty-measure">multidimensional poverty</a>. Infrastructure in Chocó has been limited and underdeveloped, with poor road networks and limited access to electricity and sanitation services in some areas. Many residents, especially those in rural areas, face challenges related to accessing clean water, food and healthcare.<span style="font-size:1.4rem;background-color:transparent;color:inherit;font-style:inherit;"> </span></p><blockquote><h2><span class="ms-rteFontSize-4 ms-rteForeColor-6" style="">"There is a strong belief among Chocoan civil society that there is no political will to fulfill the peace accord as it was agreed to in 2016. Based on their experiences with the implementation process, locals believe the Colombian government is deliberately not complying with, and even sidelining, the commitments made in the peace accord."<sup style="">1</sup></span></h2></blockquote><p>Because of the deep poverty and historical neglect that the region has experienced, many people have fallen into cycles of substance abuse and drug trafficking. Aggravating factors, such as natural disasters — storms, floods and landslides — and increasingly limited access to medical care, exacerbate the levels of poverty and violence.</p><p>In this context, in a small, rural town, I helped facilitate a gathering with <em>Mujer y Paz</em> (Women and Peace), one of the five strategic areas of <em>Justapaz</em>. The goal of this gathering was to bring women leaders together to discuss the current humanitarian crisis, along with the dire security situation in their region, and how they can raise their voices in spaces occurring at a national level between the current government and the ELN (National Liberation Army, a guerrilla group involved in the continuing Colombian conflict). </p><p>One of the workshops was specifically for women from Anabaptist churches. Together, we looked at the role of women of faith in political advocacy efforts, guided by the biblical story of Deborah, a political leader whom God raised up to advocate on behalf of God's people. Many were surprised that such a story was in the Bible, and they very quickly connected the story of Deborah to their own context and felt motivated to continue their work for peace in their territory.<br></p><ol><li><em style="font-size:13pt;">Advance the Promises of the 2016 Peace Accord: Civil Society Perspectives on Peace in the Chocó</em><span style="font-size:13pt;">, Washington Office on Latin America, Dec. 2021, p. 8.</span><br></li></ol>
