Our Story

In December 2008 Bagudekia Alobeyo’s father called and shared that their family’s village had been attacked by The Lord’s Resistance Army, a militia led by a violent warlord named Joseph Kony. The fighters left a trail of devastation in their path.

Bagu shared his family’s story and asked members of Cornerstone Church to help. When Cornerstone leaders learned of the international crisis in eastern DRC, they:

1. Prayed,
2. Immediately helped Bagu’s family, and
3. Developed relationships with Congolese pastors to listen and learn how to come alongside of them in ways that would be helpful and empowering.

The Congolese pastors surfaced needs that led to the establishment of Restoring Hope Ministries. Through Church-to-Church Partnerships, RHM will:

  • Restore through biblical trauma healing;
  • Train through post-secondary education, particularly counseling, pastoral, and
    business/vocational training; and
  • Sustain through the development of micro-enterprise and sustainable solutions.
