Christmas Day massacre in Congo brings fear

Uganda-International Christian Concern reports members of the Ugandan rebel group, the Lord's Resistance Army, killed 400 Christians celebrating Christmas in Congo.One of the attacks killed 150 people in Farajde City. Another source claims 75 deaths occurred during a separate attack in Duru. Other attacks near Sudan left more than 250 people dead. Thousands from that region sought refuge with churches. There are scattered reports that the LRA was abducting children to use as soldiers.ICC sources say the LRA denies responsibility for the attacks on December 25th and in the days following.However, the violence was so fierce that church leaders are asking the Congolese Government to take steps to protect people from the attacks.
Pray for their safety and ask God to provide for their needs.
Pray that believers will be able to act as the hands and feet of Christ during this crisis.
As in the days of Noah...
