In God's Heart Ministry is a Not for Profit Organization that was established in 2006 to serve the boys of Lubumbashi in the Democratic of the Republic of Congo, Africa. It was birthed out of a heart of love established by a visit that Teresa Turner took to this area in 2005.
Teresa took a trip with a friend to help serve for a time at a local Bible college and during her stay noticed the inordinate amount of street kids. She and her friend starting handing out snacks in the afternoon while she was there and the boys found a special place in her heart. Teresa came back to States changed with a burning desire to serve these children. She then sold the majority of her possessions, rented her house out, and moved to the Lubumbashi in 2006.
Upon arriving in DRC, Teresa joined together with Michael, a local pastor, rented a compound and began taking in boys off of the streets. One by one, God has placed boys in the ministries care. The ministry has evolved from feeding the boys snacks into much more with the boys being received into our orphanage where they now have a home, can learn in our school, and can be fed, clothed, and ministered to both emotionally and spiritually.
