Story number 1 for 24 Nov 2000

By November 24, 2000

We begin today’s newscast with a report that senior military officials in Democratic Republic of Congo have apologized to people in the capital Kinshasa for the harassment they’ve suffered at the hands of disorderly soldiers. In an earlier report, Grace Ministries International’s Sam Vinton, said it was important that the new rebel leader consider the people. He says now that the rebel leader is trying to make good with the people, things could change. “Whatever else it does, it certainly gives a sense of hope to the people. Now, the next thing is whether or not that is going to be fully followed. This might be a means of having the pastors, the preachers and the evangelists be a lot freer in their travels.” Vinton says the rebel fighting has cleared much of the interior of missionaries. He’s asking for support from the church. “Pray very strongly to the Lord regarding a restoration of order and peace in the Congo, where the Gospel has been expanding very rapidly.”
