kwake yesu nasimama; ndiye, mwamba ni salama

Say a prayer for Congo today. The Congolese are holding a run-off presidential election today. This is huge for Congo. It will be the difference between war and peace.

Things are tense in parts of the country, despite promises from both candidates to abide by whatever decision the electorate makes (We'll see.) My friend Nancy is there as an observer and says that everyone is working hard. Many other westerners have apparently been evacuated from Kinshasa.

All hell will not break loose in Kinshasa today. It might on November 19, when the results will be announced. Let's pray that it won't.
