We want to share with you the sad news of a fire in the boarding school residence building at our school in Mbansa Mboma, Congo. We are most grateful that no one was injured, but the building which houses some 200 resident students has been completely destroyed and a part of the academic building was damaged by the efforts to put out the fire. The students have been sent home for a week. Many of their parents came to get them, while others were taken by the sisters in buses to meet their parents in Kinshasa.
