In the east of our country, the people of the city of Goma and its surroundings are in a great difficulty. The eruption of the Nyiragongo volcano and the still persistent threats are of concern to us all. We pray that the situation will be normalized.

We are in contact with a brother from our community of churches. He is an evangelist of our congregation, living in Goma together with his family, his wife, 6 children and other 2 family members. They have been evacuated from Goma to the locality of Sake.

This morning, I reassured him that we are praying for them. In Goma area there are other families from our community, but we still have no news from them. They are obviously struggling with the basic needs.

Please pray for their safety.

Dr. Kalonda Mulenda, D.R.C, North Katanga
