    As the Covenant church we sense this inescapable call: to stand with our Congolese friends to turn around the most over-looked province in the neediest country of the world. Joining together with World Vision in Equateur, this unprecedented partnership will provide a “journey to transformation,” in addition to the spiritual work carried out through the congregations of the CEUM. The lives of 12,000 children are already being changed through child sponsorship.
