Victorine Mavoungou (in the purple/blue) and Honorine Mouanga (in the yellow/red) pose for a photo at the Ordination celebration worship service on Sunday, September 6, 2015. These two amazing women of God serve with their husbands in ministry. They coordinate women's outreach ministries, Bible studies, caring for the sick and much more. Victorine is the wife of President Joseph Mavoungou. Honorine is the wife of Jean-Baptiste Mouanga, lead pastor in the Pointe Noire area of the Republic of the Congo. You should have seen them dance today in celebration of our awesome God! Wow!
The St. Augustine Lutheran Church was too small to hold the ordination ceremony/Sunday worship service so the national church office rented tents and we praised Jesus together on the street in front of the church. In this photo, Pastor and Missionary Fred Reinhardt is encouraging the people from God's Holy Word. The joy that filled this tent was palpable!
