> Dear Friends,
> The crisis in Eastern Congo has been graphically shown in TV images
> and web reports in recent days. Like many of you who have friends
> and co-workers in the region, we in Congo Church Association have
> been receiving regular updates from church leaders and friends.
> Their urgent plea has been for prayer for resolution of the conflict
> and peace, and provision for the needs of the vast numbers of
> displaced people.
> The Congo Church Association, (which works with Anglican Church of
> Congo), and CMS UK are calling upon Christians in UK and further
> afield to join together in a Day of Prayer and Fasting for Congo on
> Saturday 22nd November. Let us join together in prayer for peace
> and for a resolution to the complex issues surrounding the conflict,
> as well as for the physical and spiritual needs of all those
> affected. In addition to the crisis in the Goma region, let’s also
> remember two areas of rebel activity in Congo which have not hit the
> news: the Dungu area in the north where the Lord’s Resistance Army
> has attacked villages and abducted adults and children in recent
> weeks, and also Gety/Aveba/Nyankunde region close to Bunia where a
> new militia group emerged in late September and displaced many
> people from their homes.
> Please invite friends and supporters of your organisation to
> participate in this Day of Prayer and Fasting for Congo on Saturday
> 22nd November and make this prayer initiative widely known.
> Prayer resources will be available on the CMS and CCA web sites by
> 17th November. www.cms-uk.org and www.congochurchassn.org.uk/prayer.pdf
> Thank you!
> Every blessing.
