Border Issues

Dear beloved:  Border entry into Democratic Republic of Congo at Goma; Praying for Governor of North Kivu, and Mayor of Butembo at Butembo Crusade 2016
Genesis 11:6 And the Lord said, "Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing they propose to do will be withheld from them." v7 " Come, let Us go down and confuse their language, that they may not understand one another's speech."  v8 So the Lord scattered them abroad from there over the face of the earth, and they ceased building the city.   Psalm 2:8 Ask of Me, and I will give You (Jesus) the nations for Your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for Your possession.  Acts17:26  (Paul speaking) And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings.  Matthew 28:19 " Go therefore, and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit."
 After trying unsuccessfully to get a visa to go into the Congo from the Congolese Embassy in the United States, I tried a second time from Africa. With the promise of the Governor's staff helping to cut red tape for my application, I showed up at the border, confident I would be given entry. After entering into Congo for a short distance, I was suddenly whisked off to a room full of customs officials, who declared,  "You must return to Rwanda, we do not have information that your visa has been approved!"  And so I waited for two weeks at a border hotel in Gisenyi, Rwanda, but to no avail.  The visa never did come.  But Bwana a Safiwe, my team was in Butembo and went ahead with a great crusade, leading thousands to the Lord!  God always has a backup plan. God bless you as you pray!
