Weekend Links

Scott Rambo is heading into the DR Congo this weekend!  There is a bit of history that makes this survey trip a bit momentous. 
  • The Coppedges and Rinehimers had a survey trip scheduled in July 2007, that fell through.  Here is the Coppedge's post and the Rinehimer's post.
  • HERE is John and Erica Rinehimer's blog post about a different quick trip into the DR Congo! 
  • And some video of the drive!  
Two books recommended by Billy Coppedge:
  • King Leopold's Ghost- a fascinating history of Congo from colonialism to today. It will actually break your heart at all the Congolese have suffered. 
  • In the Footsteps of Mr. Kurtz-  A great history of the Mobutu era and gives a detailed explanation for how corruption is literally a way of life in Congo today. Very readable.
It just may be the right time!  God is up to something big!  Pray for safety!  Pray for health (a stomach bug has gone through the Rambo family this week).  Pray for good connections.  And thank Jesus that's it's not rainy season! Some more warfare resources:
