Mbote, Friend! Hello from CKC

CKC has three new stories to share with you this month! First up, meet Bienvenue, a charcoal trader who was so excited to buy her own bike to transport her goods. Read about Bienvenue's great accomplishments, and how a women's savings group (started through CKC) helped her save up the funds for her purchase.

Next, check out the CKC photo essay in the Covenant Companion and watch a brand new Covenant Kids Congo video. Pastor Greg Krieger from Rock Harbor Covenant Church recently traveled to Congo, and while it wasn't an easy trip, he saw how God is moving there. Watch the video about his experience.
Meet Bienvenue, Charcoal Trader

A Women's Savings Group Profile

In front of a local women’s savings group gathering, Bienvenue rides the bicycle she bought in a circle, while the other women cheer for her. When she brings the green bike to a stop, the crowd erupts in applause. Bienvenue stands proudly and rings the bell on her bike.

Bienvenue bought this bike with money she saved up through this women’s savings group. Now, she uses the bike to travel 11 to 15 miles to buy charcoal and bring it back to sell in the market. Her bike makes the job much easier.
