DR Congo: security situation
CMS-Africa ask for prayer for Goma. The M23 armed group have been trying for months to capture Kitchanga, 90km west of Goma, and were finally successful last week. Although the road north is more stable and traffic is starting up again, the fear is that the M23’s strategy is still to cut off Goma from all sides to force negotiations. Goma itself is currently still calm, but the outlying areas of the city are suffering terribly, and the internally displaced persons (IDP) camps have swelled beyond recognition. Pray for God’s peace to come to Goma, to the hearts of all the actors in this violent conflict drama, and to reign in the hearts of all the affected people.
