Our Story

Through lots of prayer with Ed, they discerned that God was commanding them to "Feed these children".

Miriam's Table is located in the Mpasa Region, outside of the capital city of Kinshasa where the poorest of the poor live. Never before has this community received services from other non-profit organizations.

After traveling in 2010 to the Democratic Republic of Congo as part of a mission team, Susie Keefer fell in love with the children that were part of the Mpasa Nutrition Program.

Before she left, she knew she wanted to return to spend more time with the precious children. Upon her return the following summer, she met two-year old Miriam. The bonding between them was immediate. So when the circumstances of Miriam's life changed in 2012, Susie and her husband Ed were allowed to adopt her. In the fall of 2013, Susie was back in Mpasa to bring Miriam home. At the same time, she was waiting for Miriam's exit visa. Susie continued to work at the nutrition center. Mothers from the outskirts of Mpasa sought out Susie. They were asking her to come and see their starving children. Her heart was torn apart by their plea. Through prayer with Ed, they discerned that God was commanding them to feed these children. That is when Miriam's Table was born.

Miriam's Table is located in the Mpasa Region, outside of the capital city of Kinshasa, where the poorest of the poor live. Never before has this community received services from other non-profit organizations; with the anticipation of serving children, Miriam's Table opened its doors in October 2014. In a matter of just two weeks, the numbers continued to grow. Today, about 350 children are fed five days a week. The daily meal is a mixture of grains and nutrients to give the children a full day of nutrition because it may be the only meal they receive. Through out efforts, much-needed medicines are now available to children to prevent some diseases contracted through tainted water and food. In addition to the health of our children, seven Congolese men and women have been given full-time jobs. This has been a huge blessing for them in an area where little work is available.
