City Opens For Missionary Work In the DR Congo

Several missionary companionships have been assigned to the southern Democratic Republic of the Congo city of Likasi last month. Likasi, as far as I know, has not had missionaries assigned to it before, yet has four branches operating together as a district (which was organized in 2002). Likasi is the eighth largest city in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, with around 360,000 inhabitants, and is located 100 or so miles northwest of Lubumbashi.

There are around 20,000 members of the Church in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, organized in five stakes, four districts, and a couple mission branches.
