Zongo Falls

Wednesday, May 09, 2012

Last weekend Nick and I got the chance to head for one last weekend away at Zongo Falls! It is about 150km away from Kinshasa.. but takes about 3-4 hours to get there depending on the weather. It was dry on the way in bit the clay is very hard and quite bumpy which makes for a slow ride.

The Beautiful pool! It was nice and cool!

Cool Red dragon fly

You can sit and eat right beside the river!  Its beauitufl.

You can see the spray from the falls in the background

Places to sit and eat as well.

These flowers are so cool :-)

No Swimming or walking on the Rocks!!

Checkers, the board game of choice here in Congo.

lil plants that look like pineapples but they are not.

Our little cabin with the shoes drying off

This tree was still alive and growing!!

The cabins we stayed in, there was about 4 different kinds you could
stay in but I just realized I forgot to take pics of them :-P

The falls!

    Safe travels home,

Support our Ministry with MAF

Managers / Pilots / Mechanics / Administrators are needed on the field. As a pilot and advisor, Nick plays a very important role of flying and advising on operations in the WDRC program. DRC is one of the most difficult places to do 'business' there are as many or more difficulties going into the office then flying over the jungles of Congo. However difficult his job is a necessary one; there are numerous isolated places and people in Congo that need MAF to be here.

The only way that we can continue to do the work that Gad has laid before us in Congo is by your generous donations.

We are aware that some partner with us for only a season which leaves an opportunity for others to come along side our ministry; because of that we are always looking those who will partner with us in our ministry with MAF to be able to keep our fundraising goal at 100%. Would you prayerfully ask God if He is prompting you to be a part of our ministry?
