Healing for the Congo
Dear Beloved: Pics above, left revival at Butembo, Congo; right, countryside near Butembo
Beloved, this week I have received very disturbing images from a Pastor in Congo, near Butembo, where I will be preaching this summer. I have not posted the pictures because they show the bodies of dead Christians who have be hacked up and killed by machete wielding muslims who have been on a killing rampage. This area of Congo is in the Northeast part of the country where there has been much rebel led strife in the past, but this is a new page in the suffering of these precious people. God is taking me to that area to bring the message of peace and hope to the blood soaked land, the message that only the gospel of Jesus can bring.
Malachi 4:1 "For behold, the day is coming, burning like an oven, and all the proud, yes, all who do wickedly will be stubble. And the day which is coming shall burn them up," says the Lord of hosts, "That will leave neither root nor branch." v2 But to you who fear My name, the Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings; And you shall go out and grow fat like stall-fed calves. v3 You shall trample the wicked, for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet On the day that I do this," says the Lord of hosts.
Your partnership with Gather the Outcasts is vital to take the message of salvation and healing to places such as Butembo. Please pray about your part is sending me to the Congo, one of the three countries in Africa I will be preaching crusades this summer. May God bless you as you pray.
