Fighting ceased yesterday for now. The rebel group has taken over the city of Goma and is occupying now. Chuck is in New York today and is trying to get an appointment with the Congolese Ambassador at the United Nations. Please pray that he will be able to get in to see him and that the meeting will bring about some successful clearances or expeditions with the final court proceedings so that we can get them out of there as soon as possible. Our Congolese attorney is asking for the same things there in Congo with the Ministry of Justice. Please pray that God will continue to strengthen the hearts of Nicodemu and Anouarite and that they will not be shaken. Though we are grieving for them and the region, God has been so near to us, and to them we trust, and is faithful and very much still in control! Nothing is impossible with our God.
