We meet a lot of people in our line of work and we try and encourage people with whom we haven’t had the time to talk thoroughly to go to our website.  So, here are a few posts to get you caught up on our lives and our mission work in the DRC with MAF.  Also, go here to read our bio and see our MAF homepage, where you can see our prayer letters, learn more about MAF’s DRC program and support our ministry!
