Many people gathered in front of the elementary school downtown, next to the mayor’s office, on Sunday afternoon, to pray for peace, to pray for forgiveness, to pray for mercy. The speaker talked about 2 Chronicles 7:14 and we prayed for the Lord’s blessing and healing. It was powerful to be there in the midst of a crowd who cared enough to come out in the hot sun and pray. The commander of the local army and the mayor were present.
We are still hearing bits of bad news from other parts of the country, but Gamboula remains an angel protected pocket of peace.
