A New University in Kikongo

A couple weeks ago, we had the chance to attend the inauguration ceremony for the Baptist University of Congo. It was an exciting day, with the entire village coming out to sing, dance, and celebrate. We stayed in Kikongo over the weekend and got to see the first classes start on Monday morning. We talked to many of the students, and it was so cool to hear their hopes and dreams for the future.

We’ll be working on a longer film about MAF’s partnership in Kikongo, but we wanted to make a short video to celebrate the opening of the university. This is the first video in a new series we’re calling 1-Minute Stories.

Here are a few more photos from the inauguration:
