Good news

Patrick called us last night pretty excited.  Finally he has a date to take the exam for Canadian Citizenship.  A long time waiting.  It will be good.  He will have freedom to travel.  Most of us have never experienced the restrictions to travel like a Congolese does all the time.

Please pray

The situation in the Congo is not good right now. 

A good friend of mine, Dr. Roger Thorpe, was on the way to the airport last week and was caught in the violence.  He and a travelling pastor are to evacuate today.

Pray for their safety.  Pray for the Congolese caught with no place to go.  Pray for the Congo, for peace.


Update:

As I looked further into this news, I discovered that Dr. Thorpe has actually returned to the US safely, arriving back home on Sunday.  Good news.
