After the Simbas: A New Song in Congo

Fifty years later, God is transforming this nation.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Lions.
 
This is the name that Congolese rebels — Simbas in their language — took for themselves in the 1960s. They lived up to it with violent ferocity. More than 100,000 Congolese died in the Simba rebellion and countless others sustained pain and loss beyond words.
 
Now, 50 years later, both Congolese and Western survivors of the Simbas gathered to remember the martyrs and celebrate the good that came from their national grief.

Watch the video above, and join with us to remember the sacrifice of those who died and rejoice in God’s redemption.
