Praying for the Sudan today.  And for my boy, Patrick as he crosses his last border into the Congo and travels on a long trip by truck to get to his home in Gemena. 

Africa – a continent of such potential and such sadness.  Your people who hope in God still hope.

Psalm 10: 17-18 NLT
Lord you know the hopes of the helpless.
Surely you will listen to their cries and comfort them.
You will bring justice to the orphans and the oppressed,
So people can no longer terrify them.

  1. O

    It’s hard to care about the Olympics. I don’t actually. Have not followed it at all. But if I did, news like this would make it hard to care about the Olympics.

    So people can no longer terrify them – yes, O God, yes.



  2. Hi Linea,

    Gemena’s a long way to go. I’ll be praying for Patrick–have been praying and watching Sudan for a long time. Is it easier to let him go, having just been to Congo yourself?

    I keep trying to find a way to get there. Earlier this summer, I felt like I was living in Congo’s past, working on a story about Paul Carlson
