Here is the story of a little Theresian sister who had a great impact on the Flame of Love Movement of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in the DR Congo. One could also add that she made an equally good impression on the Movement throughout the world.
It all started in Madagascar in November 2006 when Sister Alvera contacted us to receive information about the Flame of Love. We sent her materials and later she asked for more booklets. This is where we started a series of shipments to Madagascar. At that time we were receiving help from a benefactor who helped enormously.
Sister Alvera received interior locutions from the Lord Jesus who made her walk. Subsequently, she received permission from her community for a sabbatical year.
She therefore used this time to return to Goma and take care of the abused children. Having found a rental house, she used it to take care of a few children. The number of children has increased considerably and volunteers have joined the company to help in different areas such as nursing, food and education for young people.

Sorry for the French movie, we are currently in production of this wonderful proof video from the Goma orphanage.
The Flame of Love Movement was unofficially born in Goma with Sister Alvera and the business of the small community grew
magnitude day by day. Sister Alvera went to see the Catholic Church authorities and asked for permission to make the Flame of Love Movement official. First, the parish priest helped him a lot and the bishop asked him to prove himself and start slowly while praying with the group. After careful consideration, she subsequently left the order of Thérésienne sisters.
In 2017, Monsignor Théophile Kaboy granted him a decree of approval from the Flame of Love Movement for the Flame of Love orphanage in Goma:
Ad experimentum in the Diocese of Goma, the Movement of the Flame of Love in accordance with the doctrine of the Second Vatican Council, especially in its decree on the apostolate of the laity (no. 2-3) and following the code of Canon Law (C. 298. 304), for a period of three years.
