We continue to pray for the kidnapping and trauma following the ADF rebels attack in Boga, DR Congo. Bishop William Bahemuka writes: ‘The situation is a bit calmer in Boga. God is answering prayers. There is a need to pray for the people to depend on God and do good. There is a UN base now established in Boga. The captives who were not released are still captive. For Neema, the family sent some money, but she is not yet released.' Please continue to pray for Neema and the other captives.

Evangelism Training in DR Congo. Rev'd Joseph Rusangiza reports from the Goma area in DR Congo. Last month a training event had to be cancelled because of travelling restrictions due to Ebola. However, Joseph adapted his plan and with two other trainers he is travelling to where the people are. These training sessions are very well attended by clergy and evangelists. Praise God for directing Joseph in this training ministry and pray that it results in the growth of God's Kingdom.
