About Didi and Seraphina Panzo

Natives of Angola and now US citizens and members of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, Pastor Didi Panzo and family recently completed 3 years of service in Ecuador among the marginalized. At this time, they have re-deployed to the Democratic Republic of the Congo where they focus on community development, counseling, and spiritual guidance. They are able to serve in this capacity thanks to a strategic partnership between WMPL and Christian Community Development Network (CCDN).

Didi and Seraphina are stationed in western Congo where local leaders have expressed an acute need for empowering families that are facing conflict and crisis — especially women in domestic violence and children enduring many kinds of abuse. The goal is to facilitate emotional and spiritual rehabilitation as they are pointed to Christ, the only one who can heal such wounds. Local Lutheran congregations are eager to collaborate and so build their capacity to respond in a similar fashion. Dr. Panzo also teaches on a part-time basis at the Lutheran Theological Institute in Kinshasa.

Please pray for Didi and Serafina as they do this crucial work. Join them in prayer that this critical ministry to abused women and children will be guided by the Lord and grow as it did in Ecuador, equipping volunteers and leaders to reach out to those affected. Didi and Seraphina ask us to join them in prayer that God will provide for this ministry. Also Pray for their youngest two children, Nicole and Sarah, as they stay with their adult sister in the States and attend to their studies.
