"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)

starting to get a little concerned

What we're hearing:
  • a friend in Kinshasa says that the diplomatic community hears that the government has given Nkunda an ultimatum to get out of Goma. We here in Goma didn't know he was here.
  • MONUC tells us not to go out at night this weekend.

The helicopters are still circling. I'm not worried, but I'm not totally at ease either.

OK, I'm worried. You're in my prayers right now, and the prayers of anyone else I can rope into praying for you as well. Lots and lots of love,
Angela

Laura,

Praying for you in these days of rumors and uncertainty. I don't know if you saw it or not but Ethics Daily picked up and used your recent post about being reconciled. That was an outstanding article. Thanks for sharing it.

Thanks, y'all. I don't mean to scare, but this is the way it is. No soldiers out tonight, which I think is a good sign.

Gary, thanks for letting me know about Ethics Daily, and for your very kind words.

okay, can't you do a dissertation on the Bongo instead of the Congo? YOu could interview Matthew McWhatever the self-appointed naked longhorn....and you would be safe!! and my prayers would center around, 'Lord, Help Laura get some good football tickets!" instead of, you know, "LOrd, get her the HECK OUT OF THERE!!"....

Okay, Laura, seriously....prayers and prayers....keep us posted....
