Mike and Kari Ness are Assemblies of God missionaries in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. For over 20 years, they have answered God’s call to embrace and bless the children of Africa, to take them into their arms and lead them into God’s blessing, inviting them to relationship with Him. Their vision is to work in partnership with national churches to reach Africa’s next generation, one child at a time.
Democratic Republic of the CongoThe Democratic Republic of the Congo, also known as DR Congo, the DRC, DROC, Congo-Kinshasa, or simply the Congo, is a country located in Central Africa. It is sometimes anachronistically referred to by its former name of Zaire, which was its official name between 1971 and 1997. It is, by area, the largest country in sub-Saharan Africa, the second-largest in all of Africa (after Algeria), and the 11th-largest in the world. With a population of over 78 million, the Democratic Republic of the Congo is the most populous officially Francophone country, the fourth-most-populous country in Africa, and the 16th-most-populous country in the world. An introductory prayer guide for the Democratic Republic of the Congo can be found at the Operation World website.
