THIS CHRISTIAN PASTOR SOUGHT OUT THE CONGO REBELS, HUDDLED IN THEIR DENS OF ANONYMITY - He sought them out, counseled with them, listened to them, loved them, and led them to a different life - one of repentance and forgiveness. The rebels left their lives of war against humanity, joined the national army, and became active in a local Christian church.
I recently had to put together a new and revised photo essay on a story Caught in the Crossfire that I did awhile ago. It was a story based out of the Congo (DRC) and had three parts: rebels who had committed horrible atrocities; victims of such atrocities; and redemption for both rebels and victims. So, I thought i would run the series here, including a few images that I have already posted.
I am convinced that if the church went back to its main task of preaching the Gospel and getting people converted to Christ it would have far more impact on the social structure of the nation than it can have in any other thing you could possibly do.
