CONFERENCE PRAYER REQUEST - Leaders of Anabaptist churches in Congo have asked that we pray for an end to the atrocities that have driven at least 5000 people into hiding in the forest to escape violence. Pray that the church can be a prophetic voice of justice and a calming presence of Christ’s peace in the midst of a devolving situation. One Mennonite denomination has brought at least six ethnic groups together into one church body.
