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.
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.
