Pete & Cindy

Pete & Cindy Ekstrand are retiring in July after faithfully serving as Covenant missionaries for 40 years. Their ministry has been in the Democratic Republic of Congo in the areas of Leadership Development, Community Health Evangelism, and Women’s Ministry. Pete served as Country Coordinator for Congo for many years. They developed strong and lasting relationships with the people they served as well as the colleagues they served with. During their 40 years of service, the country has undergone name changes and there have been dramatic evacuations of the missionaries. Congo has gone through much conflict and war during their 40 years and it still remains one of the poorest countries in the world, but they all need the saving grace of Jesus. It has been rewarding to see many people come to Christ and to see the church in Congo grow over the years. We wish the Ekstrands all the best in their retirement as they move to Florida this month.
