Proven Partners Make a Real Impact!
“There are More Christians Coming to Jesus”
Kalemie, Katanga, DRC
What is a Proven Partner? We are glad you asked!
ARDF Proven Partners are our recurring donors. They allow us to fund development projects that have not received enough designated funding.
In the Kalemie, Katanga region of the Democratic Republic of Congo, conflict between the Pygmy and Bantu tribes divided the community and brought refugees to the area. However, with two grants from ARDF, the church has been able to bring lasting help. The local Anglican bishop recently recorded a video explaining the situation in Kalemie and how these two grants have changed the lives of residents. He is excited to report that because of this development work, the church is growing.
"There are more Christians coming to Jesus because of this work." - Bishop Bertin Mwale Subi
While some donors gave specifically to these projects, it was not enough. ARDF was able to send the remaining funds in a timely fashion to the church in Katanga. These are just two examples of how Proven Partners’ gifts transform lives in tangible ways.
Of course, Proven Partners also help us keep the office lights on in the US. It isn’t always glitzy, but we are proud of our low overhead of 21%. These funds allow us to do the exciting work of connecting those we serve across the globe with North Americans. It enables us to share the stories from the field back to you.
It is easy to become a Proven Partner. You can sign up online or you can call the office and set your pledge up over the phone. Either way, know that you make an ongoing impact.
Our goal for September 2018 is to gain 25 new Proven Partners. Will you join us?
