Today is Election Day in Uganda. This morning as I was out for my run, they were unloading all of the election stuff down town. Military, Police and international observers were present. Roads are blocked off and amazingly, Facebook is now blocked.
Please pray for peace in Uganda. Pray for the church members that they will be promoters of peace. Pray that they will all stay safe if violence breaks out. Pray that the kids in our church will not get caught in any riots "see" violence that no child should see. Pray for the vulnerable...street kids, orphans and widows...that they will be protected during this time.
And pray as if these people are "your people." Imagine for a moment, if in this coming November it was you seeing military and police coming to town. Imagine that it was you stock piling food. Imagine if it was you who didn't know if you would be able to go to WalMart without worrying about getting caught in fighting, gunfire and tear gas on your way there. Pray as if it was you facing this uncertainty during the coming days. Because that it how you love your neighbor as yourself.
Continue to pray for peace and that there is a clear victory. Thank you!
(and if you want to post this to facebook for me, that'd be great! haha!)
