Notes From The Recent Consortium Teleconference
On June 17th, 2011 the Congo consortium met through a teleconference. Jim Snyder led the meeting. He had returned from a trip to the Congo the previous day so had a fresh update on all facets for us. The business plan for the soap making business has been submitted for review and they are in the process of writing one for the restaurant. The grant from Canada is still in the works and would provide the hospital and surgery center with much needed electricity. Prayers for the elections in November and the continued favor on the two business proposals would be appreciated. A team is gathering for a trip in September and possibly January. At this time ROCC is looking into a vision trip in 2012 but a date has not yet been set.
