And then, obviously, by staying with them in the village we are trusting the Lord that the Lord will open their hearts for the Gospel.” They have until August to raise the money needed. Vandenberg says this could help a whole people group come to Christ. “We will take the converts and trust that one of them will be able to take us further up into the northern jungles, going deeper and deeper, until we’ve reached the most northern parts of the Congo.”
