Rachel – Day 82

1 May

The News: LRA Strikes Again. Today in Kisangani, Congo, the LRA (Lord’s Resistance Army) attacked villages killing about 100 people. This makes for about 500 deaths due to the hands of the rebels since March. Although some more recent military actions have slowed the LRA down, that does not mean they have stopped attacking.

My Comments: The above link shows a picture of a woman who has been bandaged up in the face because the rebels cut off her ear and her lips. More details are in the article above if you choose to find out more. We all know these rebels have been attacking since the 80’s and have killed a monumental amount of African’s and turned countless little children into killers. I’m particularly disturbed by this recent attack because my twin brother, Stephen is literally in the air right now on his way over to the Congo for work. I’m praying hard for his protection, please pray with me.
