Maj ist Mitglied der Partnerschaft zwischen dem Kirchenkreis Dortmund und dem Kirchenkreis Bolenge. Momentan studiert die Dortmunderin in Österreich. Seit einer Partnerschaftsbegegnung im Oktober 2019 hat Maj Kontakt über WhatsApp mit Frida aus Bolenge: Soeben bin ich gelandet. In Wien. Aus dem karg besetzten Flugzeug ging es direkt in einen menschenleeren Flughafen. Österreich hat ein Einreiseverbot verhängt. Eingereist werden darf nur, wer sich verpflichtet eine zehn tägige Heimquarantäne anzutreten. Nach sechs Tagen darf man sich Freitesten. Ich war über Weihnachten in Dortmund bei meiner engsten Familie, um nicht ganz alleine in Wien zu sein. Jetzt warte ich mit Abstand, bis ich an der Reihe bin, mich zur Quarantäne zur verpflichten. Bundesheersoldaten erklären einem, dass auf keinen Fall die eigene Wohnung verlassen werden darf.

Maj is a member of the partnership between the Dortmund church district and the Bolenge church district. The young women from Dortmund is currently studying in Austria. Since a partnership meeting in October 2019, Maj has been in contact with Frida from Bolenge via WhatsApp: I just landed. In Vienna. From the sparsely occupied plane we went straight to a deserted airport. Austria has imposed an entry ban. Only those who undertake to undertake a ten-day home quarantine are allowed to enter. After six days you can test yourself free. I was in Dortmund with my immediate family over Christmas so I wouldn't be all alone in Vienna. Now I'm waiting a long way until it's my turn to commit to quarantine. Army soldiers explain to you that under no circumstances should you leave your own apartment. In the otherwise radiant entrance hall of Vienna Airport, shops are empty and others are barricaded. Unlike normal, no ceiling lamps are reflected in the floor but everything is in the semi-darkness.

May God continue to protect us

While the Dortmund partners are preparing to send 250 calendars with photos from Bolenge to its partners and friends, they have received the following message from their partners: Please pray for us as we are praying for you, brothers and sisters in Germany. We are following the growing of the covid 19 cases in your side including the deaths that they noticed yesterday about 952. This is very sad and fear. In DRC, President Tshisekedi has taken some measures to fight COVID -19, after the cases are increasing again. In addition to this announcement, measures will be taken in particular concerning the education sector. The academic re-entry is postponed to a later date. And at the school level, students will benefit from early holidays from this Friday 18th, December 2020.

When it rains…

A week ago we had our first digital partnership session with people who were logged in to computers or mobile phones in Mbandaka and in Dortmund. In addition to members of the partnership group, the Permanent Deputy Superintendent Leonie Grüning from Dortmund attended the meeting - Superintendent Jean-Robert Ekonzo welcomed the group in Bolenge, and also Maman Belinda, Chairwoman of Women's Work, and Frida Bolumbu for the youth. We had a short exchange - and also learned: when it rains, the digital network is not so stable, so we stopped after 30 minutes. But at least we did it: 30 minutes of connectedness through the World Wide Web. We want to repeat that - maybe the sun will shine next time.

Andreas Denda, member of the partnership, compiles the calendar and selects 12 pictures out of thousands of photos. The calendar will then be distributed each year in mid-December. Here is a small preview of the calendar sheet for the month of January:
