War In Congo, Africa

Warning the contents of this video are VERY DISTURBING:
Yesterday I watched 60 minutes on TV. I watched the following clip

War Against Women -60 minutes
& was so saddened I actually sobbed during this 12 minuted segment. This war in Africa is so sad and heart breaking. To see what the African people are going through upset me so much. I can't believe people can be so cruel. I just wish their was some way to stop their desperation. If this upset me I can't imagine how hard it is for Heavenly Father. He has the power to stop it, but he also gave us our free agency. I am sure he is very saddened by this war & the wicked choices some are making.

It is very interesting because the lesson that I taught in Sunday school yesterday was about all the Wars the Lamanites & Nephites had in the Book of Mormon.

It is also very sad that so many people don't even know what is happening over there. Please remember the people of Africa in your prayers. May they all be comforted in their time of need.

Kathy, we recently read a book in our book club called Left To Tell: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust by:Immaculee Ilibagiza.

It is a very good and touching story and it is full of hope. I think you would like it.
