Love’s Light

Sharing God’s love through sustainable growth practices and spiritual ministry in the DRC

About Us

Nuru Ya Mapendo is Swahili and translates “Love’s Light”, a holistic ministry to people of the District of Kasenga, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Africa. We model Jesus, who first met people’s physical needs and then ministered to them spiritually. The ministry embraces and teaches sustainable growth practices related to food and animal production in order to improve quality of life, while also ministering to the spiritual needs of the recipients. The ministry comes alongside the Kasenga District of the United Methodist Church to support and encourage pastors, to share the Good News, disciple new believers and to grow the Kingdom of God.
