Through our connection to New Hope Revival, a worshipping community of East Africans at Bellevue Presbyterian Church in Bellevue, Washington, we have focused our ministry on the Minembwe area of South Kivu in East Congo. Minembwe is an area of tribal conflict and is the homeland of many of our friends and neighbors at New Hope Revival.
Minembwe is a territory located in the high tropical mountains of Fizi South Kivu in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It is made up of localities whose majority group is Banyamulenge, Babembe, Bafuliru, Banyindu, and Bashi. Many of the tribes have been engaged in tribal conflict.
