CIM's founder was born in Congo, and he has been drawn to provide much needed social services and Christian evangelization to this country. Examples of Congo's recent past are:
- more than 10 years of war have lead to the death of more than 4 million people.
- woman and children are being raped at an alarming rate, and children are being forcibly recruited by militia groups.
- materialism, secularism and neo-paganism have taken the place of Christianity a basis for moral values.
- present and future generations of Congolese need to hear the good news of Jesus Christ.
