Dear Friends & Family,

After 3 years of dreaming about getting to see first-hand the amazing work being done in the Democratic Republic of the Congo I can’t believe I’m finally getting to go. This African proverb above has always been one of my favorites. I want to “go far” this August 2nd – 14th as I visit the Congo for the first time. I would also love to metaphorically “go together” and have you be part of my journey!

I was shocked when I first learned that over 6 million people have died in the Congo since 1996 making it the worst humanitarian crisis since WWII. Eastern Congo is known as the sexual violence capital of the world for reasons I can barely begin to comprehend. My eyes have been opened to many of the struggles faced in this part of the world as some of my beautiful Congolese friends have told me their heartbreaking, personal stories. However, like them and the hundreds of thousands of people suffering in DRC, I have hope for this country. In a few short weeks I get to personally go and be a little part of that hope in action. I can’t wait.

My journey will happen through Mariners Church with an amazing team I’m getting to know and love. We’ll be working onsite in Goma, DRC with Pastor Camille and Esther Ntoto (seen above with Sean Covey) and their organization Africa New Day. If you are interested, there are a couple of ways you can travel with me and help be a part of the hope for the DR Congo.

First, I would so appreciate prayers for safety and everything we’ll need to make this trip possible. Second, each member of the team is asked to raise $4,000 to support the trip and our work in Congo. If you are able to support financially, please know that any amount goes a long way. No contribution is too small to help make a big difference. Contributions can be made directly through this site: https://grouprev.com/congosummerfaithadventure2018-cherisherman. If you prefer, you can write a check made out to Mariners Church. On the memo line please write FA Congo August 2018 Cheri Sherman. You can send support directly to Mariners Church, ATTN: Allison Crawford 5001 Newport Coast Drive, Irvine, CA, 92603. All contributions are tax deductible.

I so appreciate you taking the time to read this, pray for our team, and consider supporting us financially. It means a lot to me personally and even more, I know it means so much to the lives we are going to touch in Goma. I’ll be posting on social media when I can and if you are interested to know more about the work we will be doing in the Congo, you can follow me on Facebook or Instagram by the username @cherisherman. A link to more information will be in the bio of my Instagram account and any updates on the trip will be posted so you can follow our journey. Thank you once again for your love and support.

Much love,

Cheri
