On the second day of the annual Kivu Conference, the day began with a meditation by the Vv. Mr. Kingombe. The latter drew his preaching in the Gospels according to Matthew 26:6-13 and Luke 7:44-45. In his preaching, the V.R. Kingombe stressed the importance of the offering. From the woman who offered Jesus the parfaim to Samuel's mother, the preacher says that all these people first gave or made a commitment to give before receiving the blessings. After the woman could offer and anoint Jesus with a very dear perfaim, she received blessings without being able to ask for them. Jesus had thus uttered a few sentences of blessings in favor of this woman. Here are the six blessings the woman had received from Jesus Christ: 1. Jesus Christ defended the woman "Why are you hurting this woman?", 2. Jesus gives the interpretation of the woman's gesture "She did a good deed towards me" 3. Jesus thinks that the woman is preparing her funeral "By spreading this perfume on my body, she did it for my burial" 4. Jesus saw this gesture as an opportunity to speak of the woman to infinity "I tell you in truth, wherever this good news is preached, in the whole world, we will also tell in memory of this woman what she did" 5. Jesus forgave the sins of the woman. He told the woman your sins are forgiven, 6. Jesus asked the woman to go away in peace: Go in peace. As the prophet Isaiah announced, he is the prince of peace. I tell you in truth, from this word of Jesus, the offering is of paramount importance and is better than prayer. The woman never made any pleas to Jesus, she only offered him a parfaim, that is from which the woman got all these favors. You should know that when you ask God, you must know how to give him. Or think first to give to God before asking. During this meditation, the Superintendent of the District of Goma, DS OMOLE introduced the team of the Samaria Church who mobilized funds to modernize this local church. Pastor Germain Masinda of this local church, Lay Chief Cyrille Ngandu, President of Finance Colonel Guy Umba and mother Olela Okako. Together with the other faithful of the local church, they managed to raise $5,020. He noted the important contribution of Mum Olela.
