Week of Prayer for Peace in the Democratic Republic of the Congo

To the Bishops, Clergy, and Christians of the Anglican Church in North America

Greetings in the wonderful name of The Lord Jesus Christ.

Some of you may know of the great challenges that are faced in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Horrible armed conflict has claimed more than five million lives there since 1998. Now, a surge in fighting in the eastern part of the country has increased the casualties.

In the midst of extreme poverty and violence, the Anglican Church of Congo has maintained a faithful witness. Our dear friend and GAFCON/FCA brother, Archbishop Henri Isingoma is being joined by other Christian leaders in calling for a week of intense prayer from Monday, November 26th to Sunday, December 2nd. Archbishop Henri is an amazing inspiration, being able to keep his focus on the Gospel of Jesus Christ in circumstances that are unimaginably difficult.

It is our Christian duty in the Anglican Church in North America to join with our brothers and sisters in the Democratic Republic of the Congo in this season of prayer with hope and expectation that the same God who raised Jesus Christ from the dead would bring a breakthrough for genuine and lasting peace.

Faithfully in Christ,
