About our cover photo . . .

O

n a side street in Kinshasa, the booming capital city of the Democratic Republic of Congo, this curious little girl smiled at the sight of Adventist Mission photographer Ricky Oliveras and his camera equipment. The city of Kinshasa is the second largest on the continent of Africa. There are 1,691 Adventist churches

in this highly populated country of more than 68 million. Church membership is around 540,000. Life is uncertain for countless children who live on the streets. However, citizens remain hopeful and remember that the star in the national flag symbolizes unity and a brilliant future for the country.

From here to there . . . Adventist missionaries still serve. Region
